At the end of 2018 RESET writer Indra Jungblut gave a keynote all about Vertical Farming. Here's a look back at the event.
A growing population, increased urbanisation, climate change and depleted soil - producing enough food to sustain the world is becoming more and more of a challenge. Agriculture needs new approaches and innovation. Could vertical farms hold the key?
Can we really grow fresh greens without soil or sunlight? Right in the centre of a busy city? In the US, AeroFarms is moving food production inside - and upwards.
A new model of vertical ocean farming is making waves, and it promises not just to help reduce the effects of overfishing and ocean acidification - it has also the potential to mitigate climate change and turn an ailing small fishing industry into a thriving restorative ocean farming one.
