Stephen Ritz: The Power of a Plant

Stephen Ritz: The Power of a Plant

Friday 2 March, 4pm-5pm

Al Baraha 2, InterContinental

Authors: Stephen Ritz
Stephen Ritz’s seeds of motivation have blossomed into an international movement – come and discover The Power of a Plant!

‘America’s favourite teacher’ turned around his struggling New York school by changing its grounds into urban gardens. His students’ health, grades and community spirit, previously some of the worst in the country, completely transformed. He has since pioneered ways for schools around the globe to start farms that require little in the way of space, dirt or water – just enthusiastic children!

Learn more about the man who changed the fates of a generation of New Yorkers, and how green fingers can grow hope.

Stephen will be in conversation with Paul Blezard.
