Shownotes

Stephen Ritz’s seeds of motivation have blossomed into an international movement – come and discover The Power of a Plant!

‘America’s favourite teacher’ turned around his struggling New York school by changing its grounds into urban gardens. His students’ health, grades and community spirit, previously some of the worst in the country, completely transformed. He has since pioneered ways for schools around the globe to start farms that require little in the way of space, dirt or water – just enthusiastic children!

This festival session was recorded at Emirates Airline Festival of Literature in 2018.
