Sustainable Farming for the Future
Ever wanted to get your food knowing that it didn’t use any transportation to get to you? Well this is the thought of a lot of Australians trying to reduce their carbon footprints. Especially with an expected population predicted to increase to 9.7 billion by 2050. To combat this, there has been a creation of farms that are built vertically or powered by algae to create flour. Vertical farming is a new creation that has been getting media traction that saves space stacking rows of plants with controlled LED lighting.
To explain more about sustainable food and farming, we had Associate Professor Daniel Tan from the Sydney Institute of Agriculture.
