The Unstoppable Green Machine
Broadcast on 2013/10/12 (PT)
Somewhere along his journey, I think Steve Ritz might have heard a voice say to him “Feel the Green Force, Steve, this is your destiny.” We’re fortunate he listened. Steve is a teacher in the South Bronx where he and his kids grow lush gardens for food, greenery – and jobs. He is changing the world in ways I am at a loss to describe. With others, he is helping build indoor edible walls, roof top gardens, gardens on deserted lots and creating triple bottom-line opportunities for his students. Translation: JOBS – sustainable jobs. His TED Talk website has over 525,000 views; what he is really creating is the most important thing of all, hope for the future. It will be an honor to interview this man.
