Singapore has only 1% of its land available for agriculture, so it imports 90% of its food requirements. The government is looking to curb this dependence on outside food sources under a programme titled ‘30 by 30,’ which aims to allow Singapore to grow 30% of its produce by the year 2030. Local vertical farms like Sustenir are at the forefront of bringing about this change. VICE visits the sustainable start-up to understand the future of food.

Wow. One of the best ads i'v seen in a long time! Gj
This is wow!
Did anyone see how much that bag of kale was compared to the others. It was a 7 and the others were a 2.
SO MUCH PLASTIC!! And you talk about sustainability
Great project, but you can not compare this kind of farming with traditional farming. If the average population would pay 7 Singapore dollars for a salat, organic outdoor farmers can also do that and are much more sustainable.
It saves water but not the electricity. Power usage is a challenge.
I though Shawn Mendes was in Japan, but actually he is in Singapore doing farm stuff, new music about Kale-nyorita coming soon.
CO2 label on the product please
where I can find more info about the program ‘30 by 30’
Magnetism will help the plants grow
This has its place. Singapore must lack the land for cultivating out of the ground. But if land is local and available, grow what grows there. Buy what grows there. Eat what grows there. Don't advocate fixing what isn't broke.

How does one get involved? Or learn etc
I’m studying Sustainability so this was a great jumping off point . Thanks Vice!
This is almost great, still a shit ton of plastic being used from the grow op to individual packaging.
This picture shows the problem with some of these schemes: The gloves, mask, and hair net indicate that they have created a disease-prone environment for plants that have survived outdoors for millions of years.
THIs. Governments of the world do this give each and every farmer a scientist or someone that understands, the tools to grow in small spaces <3 wouldnt that been nice
Sorry guys, this is not sustainable. The electricity comes from fossil fuels.
You just need some biofuel, ground source, renewable type fuel for this system and it's perfect.
