My 5-Year Plan: To Build a Vertical Farm.

A living example of anarchism in action. A human society which strives at every turn to embrace what nature demands - an ecosystem. By sustaining human civilization in a manner which mirrors the laws of the natural world, we may begin to solve the systemic problems which have grown out of our refusal to accept our place in that world. Sickness, poverty, pollution, war, and intolerance are what will become unsustainable in the face of a sustainable society.

Sometimes the best things are nights with grand plans, laughter, and little sleep.

Putting a great night into words better than I could have.

My morning. Working on some really exciting possibilities.

"The productivity of a person who’s working on something that they care about…is so much higher than someone who’s not."

Dr. Dickson Despommier, Author of “The Vertical Farm”

TEDx Talk, Chicago 2010

Dickson talks about Vertical Farming: A 21st century hunger and conservation solution that promises, “urban renewal, sustainable production of a safe and varied food supply (year-round crop production), and the eventual repair of ecosystems that have been sacrificed for horizontal farming.”

Dr. Despommier is the Emeritus Professor of Public Health and Microbiology at Columbia University, and the vertical farming concept grew out of a medical ecology course he taught in 1999.
