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.
