An Idea I really Like!

There is this site that is absolutely futuristic in everything.  I just could
not resist the vertical farm idea.

The skyscraper concept is gaining more attention as world food prices soar.

Dr Despommier created his concept in 1999 with graduate students during a class on medical ecology.

With the world’s population expected to increase to 3 billion by 2050 and almost 80 per cent of farming land in use, the idea has never been more relevant.

Despommieren has used the internet and a series of lectures to spread his concept.

However, despite the neat simplicity of his idea, Dr Despommier is treated with suspicion in academic circles.

‘I’m viewed as kind of an outsider because it’s kind of a crazy idea,’ Dr Despommier says.

Not put off, Despommier, has pushed for city planners in America to take his project seriously.

Please take a moment and visit to read more about it!  I am glad I did!

    Very neat idea. I had heard about it a while ago, but wasn’t sure if it was still going to be worked on or if the community would see it as a viable option.

    Hi A.eye … Us Americans are really looking at it and that is a good sign!

    In decorating we say, if you can’t build over, build up. How cool to apply this to gardening as well. Especially since I have teeny tiny yard for gardening.

    HI Fancy …. it really is cool looking!

    Hi Condo … I am thinking this could really work everywhere and would be pretty easy to maintain. 🙂

    WoW, nice idea…

    I don’t even mind to have it, since it can plant 13 different plants under one roof!
