    They still don't get it right though. Although I see some potential to vertical growth, I still see these vegetables being alone and isolated. The American Indian traditionalist would teach you that vegetables grow better in groups. But it takes a lot of knowledge that only they can provide. For example, if you grow grapes with a certain type of tree, not only will they offer more nutrition, the grapes will be twice the size you see them in grocery stores. Not like tomatoes "alone", but with carrots, or cabbage, or whatever it is they told me. They are the ones with this knowledge and they are dying off because noone will ask them to share this knowledge they have had for thousands upon thousands of years. Everyone continues to listen to new-age farmers that do not grow foods for their local communities, but for a global market so that they can be millionaires. And they plant their foods in the same manner that they plant their dead in cemetaries; in plots and in rows. Don't take my word on it, ask someone from Red-Hat A.I.M.
