For the first time in human history, half of the world’s population now lives in cities. In 50 years, cities will even house 70% of human beings: they will then have 7 billion mouths to feed and will have to meet an immense food challenge. How to feed this urban population? In Singapore, this island of 5 million inhabitants for 721.5 km, one answer has emerged: vertical farms. This innovation is a real challenge for the island, which depends heavily on its neighboring countries to feed themselves.

Vertical: The Future of Farming follows a new generation of urban, indoor farmers, whose approach to food production offers the potential to combat climate change while feeding hundreds of millions. From New York City, to Portland, Oregon to Singapore, these farmers are turning agricultural conventions on their head by utilizing vertical space in cities, rather than expansive rural fields. The result, according to retired Columbia Professor Dickson Despommier, represents the “next evolutionary jump in humanity’s quest for a reliable, sustainable food supply.”

Singapore’s land area is only 2.5 times that of Taipei City. Due to its small size and dense population, it is not suitable for the development of agriculture. Agricultural products are highly dependent on foreign imports. A civil engineer introduced the vertical farm concept from the United States to build a “vertical greenhouse for growing vegetables” in the city. It can be produced 365 days a year.
