TED calls Stephen Ritz  a “whirlwind of energy and ideas” and boy, IS he.  My notes on his TED talk include: “Poorest congressional district in the U.S.” “First indoor edible wall in New York City.” “Triple bottom line.” “Si, se puede moments.” “Growing organic kids.” “From 40 percent attendance to 95 percent attendance.” “New green graffiti.” and “Zero miles to plate.”
