Changing the World, One Seed at a Time
Posted 23/10/2016 06:27PM

Stephen Ritz is on a mission to change the world, and he's doing it one seed at a time!

A dedicated educator from the South Bronx, Stephen discovered how sowing seeds and caring for plants can spark little imaginations and grow more than just greens, growing confidence and determination within students in classrooms. Achieving the seemingly impossible, his edible classrooms, where plants grow in lush vertical gardens, grew to teaching young children about the importance of healthy food and the effect it has on our lives, routinely generating produce to feed 450 people, and partnering to generate 2,200 jobs.

Today, his organization, the Green Bronx Machine has been widely recognized for its immense contributions towards green education, and works towards advancing his successful teaching and learning models, spreading the message of healthy eating and living, and providing experiential learning opportunities to students across the United States.

Esol Education is proud to welcome Stephen Ritz to our schools in the Middle East, and we're looking forward to learning and collaborating towards a sustainable future for students in our region.
