Vertical Farming

Hosted by

Visionary researcher Dickson Despommier discusses the concept of indoor vertical farming. A Professor of Public Health and Environmental Health Sciences at Columbia University, he created the Vertical Farm Project in 1999 with his graduate students and argues that vertical farms would grow food organically, provide year-round crop production, be sustainable environments for urban centers and feed the growing human population.
