New Vertical Farm Video

Friday, October 15th, 2010

Check this out. A new VF video. Pretty cool stuff.

I think this idea is on the brink. It’s time now for the right team to come together and make Dr. Despommier’s vision a reality.

Ohh, be sure to pause at :47 and 1:15!

The Vertical Farm: Feeding the World in the 21st Century

BOOK LAUNCHED!!!!

Very exciting to see this finally hit store shelves. Dr. Despommier is a visionary and has made an incredibly compelling case for vertical farms. The book elegantly describes the costs of conventional agriculture and proposes a solution that if implemented could go a long ways towards preserving our place on this planet.

In the past the Sci-Fi nature of the vertical farm has ruled the media. This book sets the record straight with facts, observation and sensitivity to the complex and dynamic nature of how we feed ourselves.

I’d highly recommend this book to all!!!

On a personal level I’m honored to be a part of this vision and to be involved with crafting the next steps. I’d like to thank Dr. Despommier¬†for being such a great supporter of our work.
