As I was doing my morning reading today I came across this stark article in Slate by meteorologist Eric Holthaus that featured a foreboding depiction of a bleak future. Take a look at my blog entry yesterday and contrast that to this quote ...
"It’s easy to criticize farming and the way it’s done here. But I think what gets missed is that it’s just part and parcel of the way our modern life is. You can’t have all these things that we take for granted without the Central Valley. You can’t have a modern life without this kind of agriculture. You can’t have these vast cities without having these vast farms to supply them. The whole picture is, right now, we’re dependent on the Central Valley. I don’t see what the options realistically are if this takes a nosedive. Where are we going to get our food?"
Do you think it is time to seriously turn to indoor ag or new technologies to fundamentally change our way of doing things or will this haunting image from the article be the new norm?
Urbafresh has accepted the challenge to bring fresh food prouction and supply to our urban centers through the use of innovative vertical farming installations.
