Idea of urban and vertical farming
The main idea of urban farming and incoming vertical farming is to produce food locally near the point of consumption and so support the newly forming urban farming culture.
“The cities and urban areas will grow to 6.1 billion residents within 31 years.” (United Nations, 2018)
The current food system is inefficient and it has a significant burden on the environment. The food for the final consumer is transported from the farmers around the world.
