A teacher and students using horticulture to change their world
This is a great TEDx Talk featuring teacher Stephen Ritz and his Bronx classroom. According to the YouTube page, “With the help of extended student and community family they have grown over 25,000 pounds of vegetables in the Bronx while generating extraordinary academic performance. His Bronx classroom features the first indoor edible wall in NYC DOE which routinely generates enough produce to feed 450 students healthy meals and trains the youngest nationally certified workforce in America.”
The future is now, and horticulture will play a huge role. Very cool.
