We started vertical farming in October. It’s fantastic and we haven’t bought lettuce since. We grew rainbow chard for our Christmas dinner and have tomatoes and strawberries with fruit maturing now. It’s expensive to start, but we like knowing that our produce is pesticide free plus it doesn’t get any fresher than picking it two minutes before eating it. Also it has given us hours of entertainment and enjoyment that far surpasses any stupid Hollywood movie or other mindless time wasters.

Neat, seems like this could be the future of agriculture. I wonder what the startup and maintence costs of something like this are, and how easily it could be replicated in developing nations.
