A whirlwind of energy and ideas, Stephen Ritz is a teacher in New York’s tough South Bronx, where he and his kids grow lush gardens for food, greenery — and jobs.

Synergetic Management‘s insight:

THIS is a great example of the amazing things Creativity brings to pass IF you GIVE IT A CHANCE!

Yes, Stephen Ritz, the teacher and driving force behind the initiative had to work hard – so did his students!

Yet the results were well worth it.

Best of all, he follows true economic principles, bringing in investments that result in real paying jobs for those doing them, and giving people the chance to eat healthier food they grew themselves.

Triple bottom-line results, where others only saw despair, poverty, and decay. Now that is exceptional performance!
