Vertical Farming will help to feed a soaring human population – without exhausting the Earth’s finite resources.
Today, we struggle to feed all of humanity and to minimise our environmental impact; and, as the population continues to grow, we threaten to overwhelm our planet. Vertical Farming uses otherwise unproductive land – and massively increases yields – and will ‘load-balance’ food production by freeing up arable land for crops that cannot be grown in this way.
The impact on the natural world is even more dramatic. Humans are causing mass extinctions around the planet. This is directly linked to human population growth, the growth of cities and the destruction of the natural world for farming, mining, forestry products and overfishing.
