This hour on Here on Earth: Radio Without Borders, Jean Feraca and her guests talk about vertical farming, agriculture in urban high-rises.
- Dr. Dickson Despommier, head of Vertical Farm Project
- Greg Kiss, Co-Founder and Partner of Kiss and Cathcart Architecture
- Tim 8/21/07: "The problems with vertical farming: where do I get an heirloom tomato that has true flavor? Has the price of New York real estate dropped that much that a farmer can build a skyscraper green house on a city block? Do they really think they can keep mother nature away from our food crops, what about the bees??? Can this planet really support the number of humans we are talking about in 50 years, this is a social dilemma that will only be worsened by factory farming in skyscrapers."
