This is just simply AWESOME! As Usual, Whole Foods is setting a trend which other retailers will follow. Good for the community, environment, and the local economies. Bravo Whole Foods Market!

Oplossing voor leegstand kantoren: vertical farming? | Extend Limits

Oplossing voor leegstand kantoren: vertical farming? | Extend Limits | Decentralized food | Scoop.it

We hebben het hier bij Extend Limits vaker gehad over vertical farms, ofwel verticale boerderijen. Dit zijn landbouwgronden die op elkaar zijn gestapeld. Dit biedt een aantal voordelen, onder andere dat er minder kostbaar water nodig is, maar ook minder energie. De Engelse start-up Grow Up wil in de vele leegstaande kantoorpanden in London meerdere vertical farms starten. En hebben misschien daar wel een oplossing voor meerdere (aanstaande) problemen voor handen: bestaande gebouwen nuttige hergebruiken én bijdragen aan het dreigende voedseltekort in onze wereld door overbevolking.
