hailey davis's curator insight, January 10, 2017 3:21 PM

coffee growers have recently had change from growing coffee to growing cocoa instead because of global warming. it conects to agriculture because they have to change what there farming due to enviromental obsticles. I think that changing what crops they grow is a very smart way to increase profit since cocoa is easier for lower level places to grow and for higher level places to grow coffee.

Gracie Delaney's curator insight, January 10, 2017 11:30 AM

This topic relates to our class by telling us about the future farming ways and places which is agriculture. I like this article because I find it very cool the new way to plant plants in a tower.  This really isn't a new way it's more of a new place. I mean you don't see very many plants in the sky! Unless they're trees but they're not planted in the high places. They're just tall.
