This is a learning resource about vertical farming. Research, learning, and teaching related to vertical farming can be organized here. Perhaps in the future, open source designs for vertical farms can be developed. Vertical farming can potentially help to eliminate poverty on Earth.
Discussion questions[edit | edit source]
- To what degree could vertical farming help to eliminate hunger on Earth?
- Explore the Sustainable Development Goals. Identify other goals (SDGs) that are linked to vertical farming beside beside Zero Hunger?
- How are these goals interdependent?
- What are the callenges and constraints for a sustainable implementation and what are the benefits?
- Could designs for vertical farms that are open source help to accelerate adoption of the technology? (see also Open Innovation Ecosystem)
- Can vertical farming be profitable with current technologies?
