What an amazing personality and an amazing idea. Stephen Ritz gives an energizing talk on the intersection of some of my favorite subject: environmentalism, sustainability, public service, public policy, and education.
A whirlwind of energy and ideas, Stephen Ritz is a teacher in New York’s tough South Bronx, where he and his kids grow lush gardens for food, greenery — and jobs. Just try to keep up with this New York treasure as he spins through the many, many ways there are to grow hope in a neighborhood many have written off, or in your own.
