Urban Farming

Would you buy vegetables grown in the Empire State Building or the Chrysler Building? What are the benefits?

I actually think that it is a great idea. Imagine the money we'd save on the cost of these vegetables having to be handled and shipped from long distances. We'd save greenhouse gases on transportation and we can monitor how our produce is grown if it's right here where we live.

Imagine all of the deisel fuel we'd cut down on if we could just go to the farms ourselves and pick up our own produce. We'd practically save the world with that one act alone. Well just maybe.

Here is a cool video I found where Matt Danzico reports for Discovery News on vertical farming.
