Health and educational outcomes in low-income areas across America are staggeringly low. Bronx educator Stephen Ritz is out to change that, by implementing a curriculum that allows children to grow vegetables in their classrooms. "Generation Growth" follows Ritz as he expands his program across the country, bringing hope, health and opportunity to those who need it the most.
