Vertical farming

Standard

Just wanted to share this little snippet with you while I trawl the paper and sip my morning coffee:

http://smh.domain.com.au/real-estate-news/plans-for-vertical-farms-on-unit-blocks-take-off-20140128-31kbz.html

I think it’s a great idea and I saw something similar in a documentary last year. On one hand I think it’s a really nifty idea for cities but on the other it makes me a little sad that we have to resort to something like that instead of the world getting it’s shit together so that we actually have a sustainable future instead of being driven by greed and profit. I do think that things are changing little by little – as evidence, my local organic farmers market has expanded to being open on both Saturdays and Sundays due to demand, but I can’t help but wonder if it’s all a little too late? I’ll remain optimistic though 🙂
