farming in a high rise?


There was a very interesting discussion on NPR today about Vertical Farms. Briefly, the plan is to construct high rise buildings
in urban centers with the intention of year-round crop production.

Sounds cool - 12th floor, corn!

well, i think if it encourages more local growing of crops, then i'm all for it! perhaps it would cut down on transporting the goods!

heather - a key goal is to cut down on transportation. i don't think people realize the impact shipping food to the us from other countries has on the environment.

julie - great!
