Greening the South Bronx

Hosted by

Stephen Ritz is an educator and administrator teaching at-risk kids in the South Bronx. He has an edible wall in his classroom where he teaches his students about sowing seeds and growing healthy food. In a community where success is uncertain, he says it's inspiring for students to see plants grow. Ritz and his students have grown over 25,000 pounds of vegetables while achieving academic success.
