A farm in New York

Random Links / Thursday, June 28th, 2007

Sometime in the near future, residents of New York will be able to walk over to their neighbouring strawberry farm and pick up fresh produce.

Atleast that’s what this article says:

Enter vertical farming — farming in skyscrapers several dozen stories high. Dr. Dickson Despommier, a professor of public health and microbiology at Columbia University, developed the idea with contributions from his students. Dr. Despommier claims that vertical farms could do more than just solve future food shortages. They could also stave off global warming, raise standards of living in the developing world and change how we get our food and dispose of waste. It may sound far fetched, but vertical farming is actually a very real possibility for the future.

Then AB Junior wouldn’t need to go all the way to UP to become a farmer – Lokhandwala would be good enough!
