Singapore Vertical Garden
Singapore is the densest populated city in the world. It has 6 million people and is expected to hit 9 million in 10 years.90% of its food is imported with much of it traveling very long distance. This is not a sustainable model for urban food consumption, due to the costs of transportation -fuel, flavor, and freshness.
Recently, Singapore has expanded its investment in local urban gardening by investing 28 million dollars for companies that will grow food locally, in the city!
Singapore’s Vertical Garden Sky Greens business is producing local organic vegetables at the same cost as imported food. His 4 story tall elevator of plant troughs runs on just $3.00 a month worth of energy, the equivalent of the power used by a 60 watt light bulb.
