Rtiz at the Giving Tree

Ritz presented on the challenges families face in the Bronx and how Tower Gardens have transformed their lives and the community they live in, a food dessert, to a place of hope and an attitude of working together to accomplish goals to better their health and well-being. It was announced that evening that the St. Louis Machine has been invited to NY to learn more closely form Green Bronx Machine and attend The New York Times Travel Show along with Ritz in January.
