On Oct. 9, at Inside Park at Saint Bart's, Green Bronx Machine will host its first-ever Growing Something Greater Gala, an immersive one-of-a-kind cocktail and culinary showcase prepared by a team of Restaurant Associate Chefs at Google, honoring a community of transformative leaders in innovative "green" education.
For this inaugural event, founder Stephen Ritz and the team that grows healthy students and healthy schools will turn the iconic landmark, Inside Park at Saint Barts, into an interactive replica of the Green Bronx Machine classroom, complete with six tower gardens — a vertical farm — and the state-of-the-art Green Bronx Machine mobile classroom kitchen with video station.
"This evening represents our collective moment, from the Bronx to the world! We are so honored to celebrate the talent and diversity of our programs and heroes, especially our NYC teachers and students," said Ritz. "To think the food served will be locally grown is further proof that NYC is leading the way. I promise everyone a night they will never forget so that children can live a life beyond all expectations! Please join us and get involved!"
Mike Gillepsie, president of the Good Eating Company, said, "The Good Eating Company is so proud to be associated with Green Bronx Machine and the impact they are making in so many kids' lives. What better place than Inside Park at St. Barts to bring awareness and celebrate."
