    About Stephen Ritz

    Stephen Ritz is a South Bronx educator, innovator, and author 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 which they had never imagined — while reclaiming and rebuilding the Bronx — Stephen’s extended student and community family have grown more than 50,000 pounds of vegetables in the Bronx while generating extraordinary academic performance. Stephen was named a Top 10 Finalist for the prestigious $1m Global Teacher Prize in 2015. He is also the Founder of Green Bronx Machine. His recently released book with lauded health and wellness publisher, Rodale Books, aptly titled, The Power Of A Plant, hit number one best seller on Amazon. It features a two-page dedication from Dr. Abdulla Al Karam, Executive Director of KHDA, in addition to 45 quotes from national and international luminaries.
