Interview with The Father of Vertical Farming Project

Interview with The Father of Vertical Farming Project | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it

According to the Vertical Farm Project, by the year 2050 the earth’s human population will have increased by around 3 billion, and 80% will reside in urban centers. The project estimates 109 hectares of new land (about 20% more land than the area of Brazil) will be needed to grow enough food to feed them, if traditional farming practices continue as they are practiced today.

 

The man behind this project, Dr. Dickson Despommier, believes the answer is simple – farm vertically. Former Columbia professor Dr. Despommier (microbiology and public health in environmental health sciences), widely considered the “father” of Vertical Farming, has travelled the world advising governments and advocating for solutions to environmental problems. I spoke to him from his home in New Jersey. The interview was scheduled to run for around 30 minutes, however we spoke for over an hour and a half. The text below is an edited version of this conversation. His enthusiasm and drive is infectious, and in an already overcrowded, overheating world, what he had to say seems to make a lot of sense.

Take a Tip From Singapore: largely mom-and-pop operations that do one thing really well

Take a Tip From Singapore: largely mom-and-pop operations that do one thing really well | Vertical Farm - Food Factory | Scoop.it
What can American businesses learn from Singapore's open-air markets?

Singapore's humble hawker centers—open-air markets filled with food stalls, each one specializing in a particular dish or cuisine—produce what is arguably the tastiest (and cheapest) food in the country. And according to The Layover host and frequent Singapore visitor Anthony Bourdain, American entrepreneurs would be wise to study their business model.

"Food courts in America are bad things—owned by no one, with food that comes from nowhere," Bourdain said at a recent media lunch in New York City, sponsored by the Singapore Tourism Board. He contrasted chain-heavy U.S. food court denizens with the Singaporean version: largely mom-and-pop operations that do one thing really well, whether it's laksa, nasi goreng, satay, or ice kachang. The stalls are tightly regulated, subsidized, and have relatively low overhead costs, which make it possible for small business owners to thrive.

"This is an example to emulate and a paradise to me," says Bourdain. "Imagine knocking off for lunch and choosing from 20 or 30 specialists for cheap, healthy, real fast food, which even at its worst, is far better than the options we have here."
