Vertical Farming: Another Neat Idea that Might Save Humanity

June 9, 2008

Some people say they don’t like the idea of factory farming, tall buildings … but it’s not so bad if it’s next door. You can see it; it’s a glass building, like the Apple store on Fifth Avenue. And if you really want to see the advantage, look at the opposite direction. Now we can let trees grow back on the farms. The water gets pure, the air gets cleaner.

– from Vertical Farming: Apple Store Meets Greenhouse Meets Skyscraper

A very ‘engineer-y’ idea. I like it. I like it allot.

Of course, this is assuming the farms are for fruits and vegetables. :)

    If your inside a building, you can create any conditions that you want. I think that this has potential to grow anything, really. Neat.
