With the rising population and the mounting demand for food, Singapore has come up with a one-stop solution in the form of urban farming to circumvent the challenge of feeding a growing population and producing greens locally.
With the need to fit in more than five million people in a small island city, land has become exorbitantly dearer. The inability to expand out has led people to expand up, which resultantly have led to the emergence of skyscraper and high-rise buildings. To meet the demand for food, Singapore has come up with the worlds first commercial vertical farm, which offers a new vision in urban sustainability. Though the concept belongs to the ancient times, inventor Jack Ng has engineered and designed the farm Skygreens, giving it a modern twist to suit the need of the current times.
Check out this interesting twist of modernized farming that has given Singapore an important position in the world map of urban sustainability.
A super-efficient vertical farming system is producing greens for 5 million residents.
