Feed the World: Vertical Farming Explained

The politics of fresh food and clean water are shaping up to be some of the most debated and discussed issues of the 21st century. Put simply, good food isn’t available to everyone. Yet. That’s where Columbia professor of environmental health sciences Dickson Despommier comes in. His new book, The Vertical Farm: Feeding the World in the 21st Century makes the case for urban farming in skyscrapers. These hi-rise eco-systems, Despommier argues, would use less land and offer year-round production of safe, nutritious, local food.

Want to learn more? Despommier will be at the Westport library on Tuesday, March 15, at 7:30 p.m. to discuss his theories.

Speaking of farms, are you planning on planting a vegetable garden this summer? Let me know.
