NYC + Farms = Vertical Farming June 19, 2007

Posted by Lauren in environment..

BBC posted an interesting article today on how Columbia University is proposing Vertical Farm Skyscrapers to be built within NYC. The whole concept would not only eliminate the cost of shipping, but would also add a “green” effect by eliminating the pollution caused from shipping. I think this would be an added bonus and truly make NYC unique in that manner. You can go about 20 minutes into Jersey and get produce cheaper than you can at your local bodega. Check out the article here.
