    Let's simplify! Okay, we have green houses stacked with many other green houses. They are more efficient indoors without the weather disturbing the hydroponics. Done!! Genetically modified plants are inevitable with an increase of a demand for food. I question why we are focusing on any talk of (vertical farming), 35 years into the future. Let's say 10 years or maybe even 20. They're handicapping themselves with their lack of forethought for what's close by and tangibly adjustable.?

    It's basically an indoor ecosystem, well almost a complete ecosystem, the fish need food. I've thought about this since I was a kid lol?

    Where will the Vertical Farming Conference be held in 2015. As an interested party, I would like to attend if I can arrange it.

    There are so many of our planet's ills that can be lessened by concept like this.

    Example: Instead of sending 100s of millions in foreign aid to a desolate place like Darfur where people must migrate to stay ahead of drought, disease, and violence, plant a vertical farm there.

    People will locate to the source of the food where health care, education, and stable government can be distributed to those who most need it.

    When I got to the end of the video, I saw the answer to my question (upcoming events).?

    Whilst I agree that planning our food produce for the future is a good idea, surely implementing these buildings with which to grow crops is going to cost a fortune because the crops will require around the clock care. I'm not against the idea, I just feel it would be wise to plan out how you are going to cover the costs before this actually takes place.?

    Roger – (couldn't reply directly to your comment below for some reason) Apparently the waste vegetables can be put in to feed the fish. In that fish eco-system in the video you can also attach a wormery, these worms could then feed the fish. There are probably multiple other applications available, feel free to contact HydroGarden with any questions.

    The one thing I spend so much time thinking about is… (Where does the fish get there good from?) I'd love to have an answer to this question. ?
