We’ve had some great things going on here in the past few months, and things are looking great for 2016 as well! First, Green Bronx Machine was featured on PBS in the documentary In Defense of Food, featuring best-selling author Michael Pollan – you can still watch it online.
On January 6 El Capitan traveled to Detroit to speak at Calvin College where he received a resounding standing ovation. We’re particularly proud of our partner organization, Green St. Louis Machine with programing in public and private schools, Boys and Girls Clubs and elsewhere across Saint Louis.
Presently El Capitan is in Dubai working with Knowledge Human Development Authority and spending time with the winners of the United Arab Emirates national science competition. Together with these accomplished students, El Capitan participated in What Works and is working towards a local food production project to bring healthier food to schools, citizens and workers in Dubai. We’re hoping to present in March 2016 at Global Education and Skills Forum in collaboration with Varkey Foundation and Global Teacher Prize bringing our Green Bronx Machine mission to the world!
