Newswise — BRONX, NY, March 29, 2021 – Attention all Green Bronx Machine fans!  Even though growing season is still around the corner, our founder Stephen Ritz and other GBM leaders are literally “zooming” around the world, planting the seeds for better education and health outcomes.  From the Middle East and Austin, Texas, to New York City and far-flung places in between, their mission is to educate everyone about the power of a plant to help young people achieve academic and personal success, improve community health and wellness, and address economic and food justice.

Here’s where they’ve been and where they are heading in March and April:
