Help the Children Become Happier, Healthier, and High-Performers with Stephen



“When you teach kids about food, you teach them about life. You teach them that you can’t rush growth. You can’t go from seed to harvest without cultivation in the middle.” – Stephen Ritz

Today, we’re delighted to have a powerful conversation with Steve Ritz, an internationally acclaimed award-winning educator, best-selling author, and founder of Green Bronx Machine. Education has always been an excellent avenue for creating the transformation we want. But like any path, it has some obstacles of its own. What if we can solve some of these barriers through the power of food? Steve talks about the benefits of bringing vegetable cultivation as a part of the curriculum in terms of student performance, teacher satisfaction, and parent engagement. Amazingly, we’re also speaking about reaping these advantages for a long time. He also narrates the inspiring experiences of kids who benefited from this project. Food is not only created to fill and satisfy an empty stomach. Listen as Steve talks about how the process itself of growing, cultivating, and nurturing it can also unlock the greatness in all of us and awaken the spirit of equality and unity. Truly, food is a language we all should start learning and using more often. Check out today’s episode and be amazed at how food is changing schools one vegetable garden at a time.
