A video profile of Jake Kelly, who operates a Tower Garden® farm on the rooftop of her family's home in Santa Barbara.

 It's October outside but inside I'm harvesting arugula, bok choi, parsley, amazingly fragrant basil, mesclun and more. I decided to harvest all 20 plants so that I can put 20 new organic seedlings in, including komatsuna and tatsoi, which I've never tried before.

Stephen saw problems outside of his school and decided to get his students to improve their community. He has increased the attendance rate of his school, created jobs and started to help his students learn life skills.

When it comes to sustainability, what role should universities, institutions of higher learning, be playing? For the past century, the University of Washington has been searching for the answers. From groundbreaking research, to innovative solutions created by students, we learn how the UW is turning itself inside out by giving our community -- and the world -- solutions for a better world. Its commitment to sustainability has served as a model and a gold standard, to other universities around the country.
