Stephen Ritz is truly indescribable but here’s my best shot. He is an educator, an innovator, a social entrepreneur, a keynote speaker and overall ROCK STAR. He believes that we can grow ourselves into new opportunity and academic success. He believes in growing healthy kids, healthy food, and healthy communities. He has changed the face of the South Bronx and is now on a path to change the world. He has helped to create blocks and blocks of community gardens under a major expressway that was once just wasted space. He is about a fair and livable wage for his graduates and he believes in helping some of the most at-risk get to college. He believes in urban farming, urban renewal and he is living proof that all things are possible when it comes to changing lives. I adore him and cannot wait to have him back on the show to find out what he is up to next.  This show made possible due to the generous support of Habitat for Humanity Tucson.
