Sky Farming!!!

A Vertical Farm is a building designed for growing food in large cities. It is meant to be a self sustaining agricultural hub, producing food from start to finish using the most suitable means possible. It has not been created as of yet. The idea is purely conceptual, so many types of designs are being created, and it may be the future of commercial agricultural production. – Tech4agric.com

A Vertical Farm is a building designed for growing food in large cities. It is meant to be a self sustaining agricultural hub, producing food from start to finish using the most suitable means possible. It has not been created as of yet.

The idea is purely conceptual, so many types of designs are being created, and it may be the future of  commercial agricultural production.   In some distant future do you see this technology being used in the Caribbean?

                

                          

Check out these links  for a variety of designs. These websites highlight current examples of commercial vertical farms. They may not be on the grand scale as depicted above however they are realistic and have converted empty warehouse space into viable, food producing vertical farms!
