How vertical farming is part of a "multi-agriculturalism" food system
The climate crisis is happening (as for some time already), and agriculture is a key protagonist. As elegantly explained by Nazim Gruda, professor at the Department of Horticultural Science of Bonn University:
“Agriculture/horticulture and climate change have a dual interaction. On the one hand, the environment is affected by activities associated with agricultural food production, which contributes to climate change; on the other, the impacts arising from such activities backfire by changing the environmental conditions, thus affecting agriculture and horticulture.”
Vertical farming is often presented as a revolutionary agricultural system of manifold qualities.
