023: Stephen Ritz - Green Bronx Machine
In this episode Joe and Nick interview Stephen Ritz about urban farming and growing food in classrooms.
Stephen Ritz is a South Bronx educator who believes that students shouldn’t have to leave their community to live, learn, and earn in a better one. Moving generations of students into spheres of personal and academic successes which they had never imagined — while reclaiming and rebuilding the Bronx — Stephen’s extended student and community family have grown more than 100,000 pounds of vegetables in the Bronx while generating extraordinary academic performance.
