Vertical Farming in SingaporeSubmitted by RobHino on Tue, 09/24/2013 - 03:22
The dense metropolis of Singapore is now home to the world’s first commercial vertical farm! Built by Sky Greens Farms, the rising steel structure will help the city grow more food locally, reducing dependence on imported produce. The new farm is able to produce 1 ton of fresh veggies every other day, which are sold in local supermarkets.
Update: This project is NOT being represented as free market. Clearly it is government funded, something most of use here at the DP are opposed to for a variety of reasons. This was shared because of the physical apparatus and the not-uncommon idea of vertical farming.
