The report begins with a look at the genesis of urban micro-farming and then takes you on a journey through the modern miniature Edens that are popping up in surprising corners of cities across the globe. You’ll learn about groundbreaking soil-less farming techniques such as hydroponics and aeroponics, check out the vertical farming revolution turning skyscrapers into farms, and gain exclusive insights from successful case studies (‘Pocket-Sized Powerhouses’).
