種綠色植物的老師

史帝夫芮茲,來自紐約市最艱困的南布朗士區的老師,在當地帶領他的學生,營造綠色原地,種植綠色蔬果,以及製造工作機會,以旋風般的精力及想法,分享他的故事。試著跟上他的腳步,聽他告訴我們種種不同作法,讓他在一個大家已經放棄的社區裡,也許是你的社區,帶來了新希望。
Stephen Ritz is a South Bronx teacher/administrator 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 they have never imagined while reclaiming and rebuilding the Bronx, Stephen’s extended student and community family 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. His students, traveling from Boston to Rockefeller Center to the Hamptons, earn living wage en route to graduation.
