The Minimally Structured, Modular and Prefabricated Vertical Farm
The concept of the Vertical Farm, popularized by Dickson Despommier, constitutes a promising solution to helping meet the demand for food of a highly urbanized global population that will grow to 9.5 billion by 2050.
Given that crop production will have to double by 2050 -- and that today's agriculture already uses almost half of the planet's land surface and two-thirds of the Earth's available freshwater supply -- the only sustainable way to grow food going forward is with less land, less water, less carbon emission and greater yield. Growing food in Vertical Farms will help meet such demands if only Vertical Farms can be made economical.
Our Vertical Green Box solution, aka the minimally structured, modular and prefabricated Vertical Farm, is specifically designed to usher in the transformative paradigm of the Vertical Farm that is sustainable -- economically, environmentally and socially.
