This video was originally shot in August 2009. A student from The POINT's ACTION program brought copies with him when he visited Michelle Obama's organic garden at the White House later that month. A version of this video then debuted at the South Bronx Food & Film Expo on December 5th, 2009 at The POINT and was also screened during the opening of the first ever Bronx Food Summit hosted by Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. on May 1st, 2010. A month later it was a part of the Sustainable Planet Film Series in Manhattan and has been shown at numerous events and classrooms across NYC and nationally. It has since given birth to a new, wholly inclusive, Bronx Borough-wide educational/vocational initiative: Green Bronx Machine.
Green Bronx Machine and Bronx Educator/Advocate Stephen Joseph Ritz will be featured in a WABC TV Prime Time Special: "Above and Beyond," airing June 18, 2011 @ 7 PM on ABC Channel 7. Green Bronx Machine will be celebrating with an official GALA LAUNCH PARTY on June 22, 6-9 PM at Cafe Iguana, W. 54th Street, NYC. Learn more by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Queen of Disco
LaDonna Andre Gaines was born in Boston, MA, on New Year's Eve - December 31, 1948. She was one of seven children and she started her singing career as many other fine artists - by singing in her church choir back in Boston.
She left school quite early and in 1968 she went to Germany to play Sheila in the musical Hair. She also played in other musicals like Porgy and Bess and Showboat.
In 1971 she released her first solo record "Sally Go 'Round the Roses" as Donna Gains and this ignited her great career.
Donna settled down in Munich, where she married Helmut Sommer. It was from him that she took her new name; the name we all know her by - Donna Summer.
Her first hit by her new name was "the Hostage" which reached the # 1 spot in Germany, France and Belgium.
With Helmut, she had a baby daughter - Mimi; whom she later sang about in the track "Mimi's Song".
It was also in Munich in the early 70's that she met two guys called Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte. They teamed up together and created some great music. Music we all soon would know as DISCO.
Starting out with the album Lady of the night (1974) and followed by the brilliant Love To Love You Baby (1975). The title track of the later album became a huge worldwide hit, the sound and sexxxy lyrics was copied with less success in numerous of other songs; for example "Feel'in good" by Francine McGee.
Donna Summer - Love To Love You Baby It was actually Donna who came up with the idea of doing "Love To Love You Baby", she had been inspired by the old Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg song "Je t'aime... moi non plus", a song she later recorded as a bonus 12" for the Thank God it's Friday soundtrack.
She told Pete and Giorgio that she wanted to, and could do a song like that. Giorgio produced it and made a 3-minute single out of the song. The single didn't hit and Donna was actually quite satisfied since she thought it was perhaps a little too sexy and she had never intended it to be a hit anyway. But... the late Neil Bogart, owner and president of Casablanca Records got hold of the single and just loved it! He played it at a party he held at his house and all his friends just begged him to play it over and over again. Neil immediately called Giorgio and told him to make it much longer to any cost - and the result is an almost 17-minute long Disco orgy.
It also resulted in a contract with Casablanca and the rest is, so to say, Disco history...
The success of the song brought Donna back to the US and soon Giorgio and Pete followed too.
The Team (Giorgio, Pete and Donna) was VERY productive and released almost 2 albums a year for a period...
A Love triology was released in 1976 and later the same year they released Four seasons of love. In the summer of 1977 I remember yesterday was available in the stores.
I remember yesterday I remember yesterday was a theme album where each song represented a different decade... For example the title song, "I Remember Yesterday", is a 20's Charleston-type of song. The huge hit from the album was the song that should represent the future - it became the first real computer Disco hit - "I Feel Love".
This was a ground breaking tune in which Giorgio founded the famous "galloping bassline", which today has become an industry standard. This was a new and fresh sound which was copied immediately with various results. The original version is still as fresh and good as it was back then. It's absolutely one of the most important Disco songs ever recorded. It definitely helped Disco music to become as huge as it was during the late 70's and early 80's.
Various people have tried to remix it over the years, for example Patrick Cowley in 1982 and there have been recorded covers of the song as well; but none is as good as the original 1977 version.
Later in 1977, a new Donna Summer LP called Once upon a time was released. This time the very productive team had put together a double album with some great dance tracks like; "Faster and faster to nowhere", "Rumour Has It", "I Love You" and the title track "Once Upon A Time".
Live and more Following the success of Donna Summer's career, the team decided to release a Live album called Live and more in 1978. The album was recorded from Donna's concert at the Universal Amphitheater, Los Angeles, California. The album was like a 'Live Greatest Hits' and is a very good live album where you can feel the energy of Donna's performance.
