Few years back I heard the term Hydroponics for the first time when there was an event at the local school showcasing the latest trends in gardening. Was an interesting concept! A year later, my mother sent me a video link to show how farming was done vertically. Amazing concept!
Now plants are grown here with water (instead of soil) and LED lighting instead of sunlight..! Interesting!
When I thought of the possibilities of how this could actually change the way we do farming and how the food production for global cities can be supported in the upcoming decades, my thoughts went towards how this can be done outdoors to support architecture of buildings and skyscrapers (yeah.. somehow I do seem to be fascinated by beautifully architected buildings).
So, this is what I learned thus far.. it was nice to know there are bright minds thinking along these lines at least a decade ahead of me 🙂
I realize it is up to us to choose how we do something to make a long lasting positive impact on the world. First step is to dream of something…! Yes.. that would be a good start.. 🙂
