Urban Farming, a Canadian vision
Cities may not quite be ready for the futuristic world of vertical farming, but progress is still being made in that direction. With the 100-mile diet gaining popularity, the demand for local produce has created a valuable market. I stumbled upon this article in the finance section of The Globe and Mail on an innovative new business that is using warehouses as “Urban Barns.” They have managed to capitalizing on this new demand despite the unfavorable Canadian climate. Although their enterprise is limited to smaller fruits, veggies and herbs it is most certainly a step forward towards a more sustainable future.
