With the urban population forecasted to continue expanding, simultaneously distancing individuals from the environmental impacts of their consumption, two fundamental priorities are becoming clear: how will we sustainably provide for ourselves, and how will we educate each other? This thesis explores what a campus-wide manifestation of a productive and educational ethic might look like in the landscape of the University of Washington, Seattle campus. It synthesizes the needs of the UW Farm, a grounded, practicing organization that grows food in multiple locations on the campus, and makes the case for broad cooperation in innovative education. Using a Participatory Action Research approach and interdisciplinary theories, this thesis examines project precedents, identifies opportunities, and suggests potential pathways to realize productive educational projects on the campus landscape.
