Vertical farming has become an increasingly popular topic in the agricultural industry in recent years, and for good reason. With the world's population projected to reach nearly 10 billion by 2050, the demand for food will only continue to rise. However, traditional agricultural methods may not be able to meet this demand efficiently. This is where the Vertical Farm Institute (VFI) comes in. City waste is a food source and food can green and shape cities.

VFI is an organization that aims to address the challenges facing the agricultural industry by promoting urban farming and vertical farming and spatial challenges. VFI's approach focuses on utilizing controlled environment agriculture and digital tools to increase food production as an integral part of cities. In doing so, the institute hopes to reduce the energy dependencies of traditional agriculture, limit the destruction of natural resources, and ultimately contribute to a more sustainable future.
Urban farming has an important role with further urban development

The webinar will cover several hot topics, including the energy dependencies of controlled environment agriculture, the impact of urban farming on real estate development, spatial food production planning and the role of digital tools and artificial intelligence in increasing food production.

Additionally, the webinar will touch on the importance of aesthetics and urban design in making vertical farming a desired option for urban citizens.

The Vertical Farm Institute is leading the charge in promoting urban farming and vertical farming practices. Their approach to agriculture has the potential to transform the industry and contribute to a more sustainable future.
