    Babson Campus - Olin Hall - Olin Auditorium
    Join The Lewis Institute in Winn Auditorium on the ground floor of Olin Hall on Thursday, February 8 from 5pm to 7pm for a special Impact Hour featuring Stephen Ritz of Green Bronx Machine. This program is open to the entire Babson community as well as the public, and the first 50 members of the Babson community (students, faculty, staff, and alumni) to arrive will receive a free copy of his book, <em>The Power of a Plant: A Teacher's Odyssey to Grow Healthy Minds and Schools</em>.<br /> <br /> Stephen Ritz is a South Bronx educator/administrator who believes that students shouldn&rsquo;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 &mdash; while reclaiming and rebuilding the Bronx &mdash; Stephen&rsquo;s extended student and community family have grown more than 40,000 pounds of vegetables in the Bronx while generating extraordinary academic performance.<br /> <br /> Stephen&rsquo;s Bronx classroom featured the first indoor edible classroom in NYC Department of Education, which routinely generates enough produce to provide healthy meals to 450 students while training the youngest nationally certified workforce in America. His programming is approved for School Garden to School Cafe; growing the food served in school in classrooms all year long. His students have embarked on growing projects from Boston to Rockefeller Center to the Hamptons and beyond &mdash; all while earning living wages en route to graduation. They have gone on to install over 100 gardens in NYC and countless across America and around the globe. Recently, Stephen and his students were featured by NPR &ndash; Fifty Great Teachers and PBS in the American Graduate Series.<br /> <br /> You can learn more about Stephen at <a href="https://stephenritz.com/">https://stephenritz.com/</a> and check out this video highlighting some of his accomplishments with Green Bronx Machine: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Dt0odlFzmQ ">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Dt0odlFzmQ <br /> </a>
