farms going up not out

well with the number of food riots going on in the world it is clear that we might be facing a food crisis due to the fact that we aren't producing enough food to keep up with world demand.

or to be truthful since we are already in state of crisis for much of the world...when the people that are likely to be reading this blog face similar crisis.

some might think it's hopeless because to farm more food we will need more land...and as we have more and more people in the world (along with cities and suburbs) there's going to be a point where we don't have enough land.

the is where The Vertical Farm Project comes in.

which basic ideal is that they are trying to find away to create cheap indoor farms that can be many stories (think skyscraper farms in the middle of cities)
