Chef Michael Schwartz Cameos as Troy Gardens Helps At-Risk Youth

Troy Gardens is a great program in Miami that shows kids how to plant, grow, harvest, and sell fruits and vegetables.  A big hug and kiss to James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Schwartz of Michael's Genuine, who has bought and prepared amazing dishes with the kids' own passionfruit and bananas!  Please watch this cool video shot and edited by the lovely and talented Alexandra Rangel.  And hats off to Ben Thacker who runs the horticultural program at Troy Academy.  If you are in Miami, please stop by a Hawaiian-themed event tonight, Saturday 2/26 at the legendary Miami Beach dive-bar, The Sandbar, for a fun evening and a great alternative to the South Beach Wine and Food Fest-and an easy way to help out all the great programs at Troy!  If you can't make it, please check out there website to see how you can help-by volunteering or donating to help urban at-risk youth.  Awesome!
