Summary

As the world realizes the benefits of education, more and more people move to cities; in search of a better future. A future which includes affordable housing, health-care, quality education and inexpensive food. However, while the other options are possible, the pressing question here is: If so many people relocate to the cities, who will work on the farms then?

Historically, the farms, built in rural areas, have provided the city-dwellers with cheap food. However, times are changing now. Modern agriculturists believe that cities too can produce ample amounts of food.

In this gripping book, we introduce you to modern agricultural technology, “Vertical Farms.” A state-of-the-art farm, built inside a skyscraper, which grows enough fruits and vegetables to feed the entire town.

This book leads you on an adventure inside a vertical farm; explaining how they can be built inside an abandoned building, and produce enough fresh fruits and vegetables to feed every person in the city. In fact, not just the city dwellers, but vertical farms can actually feed the astronauts who live on the International Space Station, with produce grown on-site.

Small countries like Singapore are already taking advantage of vertical farming. With little land, water, and sunlight, they have managed to produce tons of food for its fast growing population. If the Singaporeans can do it, anyone can do it.

A Very Useful Gardening audiobook!

We will be using some of the ideas to not only grow vegetables in a way that takes less space, but also to create a vertical visual barrier between our back yard and the sidewalk to give us more privacy in a lovely way. The ideas are very adaptable to flowers as well as vegetables.
