Tech Shorts: #4 Vertical Farming

By Eric Z.

This is the coolest and newest way to farm. There are many ways to vertical farm. I’m going to explain 2 different ways. In Singapore, there is barely any food to go around, vegetables from local farms is considered a delicacy. A man living there has created a simple, but efficient solution to this problem. Costing a mere three dollars a year for many edible vegetables to sell to Singapore, a great profit considering how pricey the farm grown vegetables are. The other version of vertical farming is presented in Disneyland Epcot. On the ride: Living with the Land, you learn about where your food comes from and how to improve on it.  The ride introduced Hydroponics (putting fish and plants in an environment where they work in a beneficial team), Vertical farming (what I’m explaining), and other stuff.
