This connects to agriculture by the concept of plants being grown directly on the side of buildings in Seoul. Due to the lack of arable land and the amount of heavily populated urban area, there is not enough land to grow crops on the ground. In my opinion i feel this would do good for overpopulated communities, this is because they can't get locally grown crops or may not have much livery, such as grass or many trees around, it would make sense to grow it on the top and sides of their buildings.

Relating back to chapter ten in my human geography text book it talked about new ways to grow foods an gaining more ways to plant an harvest food. I feel like this could be a new an efficient way to grow food. Its convenient that you can not only grow your own plants but you can just enjoy life in a rural area. This is a wonderful idea in my eyes
