Sustainability is shaping trends all across the globe, from agriculture and fashion to architecture and gourmet dining. On this episode, we take a look at the tastiest, chicest and coolest innovations in sustainability.

Scientist Jill Farrant is a professor and research chair in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. She is currently leading the development of drought-tolerant crops. They’re called “resurrection plants” because they can survive droughts and are capable of resurrecting once supplied with water. Further development of these plants can help provide solutions for feeding populations in dry and arid climates around the world.Farrant’s research has received international praise and in 2012, she was a recipient of theL’Oreal-UNESCO Award for Women in Science.

From Cape Town, Jill Farrant joins May Lee in the Los Angeles studio to tell us more about the potential impact of her research is Jill Farrant.
