Cities embrace farming culture

(USA)

Urban locations are embracing farming like never before. Cities are taking advantage of new innovations – and the need to find solutions to a growing global population – to pioneer new and sustainable farming systems.

Vertical farming – growing crops indoors – is one market experiencing significant growth. Unused buildings and anything offering space, such as old shipping containers, are being transformed for agricultural use. Farming in the city is now a serious business as locations more associated with ordering food, rather than growing it, become important players in the quest to reduce hunger levels.
