Prime Star readies vehicles for winter with remote-starting systems so drivers don't have to fumble with their keys or deal with fogged-up windshields or ice-cold seats. Instead, they can start their cars with their smartphones from the warmth of their homes. Other deluxe services customers can have added to their autos include installing overhead and headrest screens so kids in the backseat will stay entertained, connecting MP3 players to the stereo system, and integrating a Bluetooth system so drivers can make hands-free phone calls.

In the center of the Juniper Gardens public housing project, in the heart of Kansas City, Kansas, sits an 8-acre farm. Every day, refugees from Burma, Iraq, and Bhutan work quarter-acre plots to grow radishes, potatoes, and herbs, according to an article in the Pitch. But their time in the fields is just one aspect of their journey. Biweekly, they attend problem-solving sessions where they communicate in agriculture shorthand and work with seed packets labeled with pictures. They also attend workshops on organic techniques, small-business management, marketing, and record keeping. After completing the training program, these farmers have the skills to earn meaningful income and have healthy food for their families.
But Cultivate Kansas City has goals larger than this plot. The organization encourages urban farming as a way to grow and deliver fresh produce to neighborhoods throughout the city. It works with many partners to support urban food production and runs the Gibbs Road and the Juniper local vegetable farms to get produce out to the neighborhoods.
