Proudly serving our community
growing happy, healthy children!

We grow vegetables…
and our vegetables grow students, schools, and communities!

Green Bronx Machine is an impact driven, for-purpose organization with 501(c)(3) status rooted in the belief that we are all Amer-I-Cans! Green Bronx Machine was born via collaboration between life-long educator Stephen Ritz and his students who observed that as waistlines expanded, engagement and opportunities in school decreased, school performance suffered, and hope and ambition became minimized. Originally an after-school, alternative program for high school students, Green Bronx Machine has evolved into K-12+ model fully integrated into core curriculum. Our students grow, eat and love their vegetables en route to spectacular academic performance.

We run on your philanthropic support. Make an impact today and donate!

Green Bronx Machine

The Green Bronx Machine® Classroom Curriculum

turns any school or community gardening program into an academic and standards-based learning experience. With technology-enabled lesson plans which use food and plant life cycles to teach multiple subjects, students also learn critical thinking and problem solving as they explore, discover and create their own ecosystem.

Each purchase comes with a lifetime site license, online professional development, access to dedicated website and communities, and direct communication with Stephen Ritz.
