With the importance of the farm, the ways in which food is being grown are being reexamined. Fresh food is in high demand, and that is inspiring growers to look at unique spaces in order to grow. In London, farming is being done underground. A former bomb-shelter has been converted into growing space, complete with LED lighting and hydroponics to grow produce in a local setting.
Alternately, rooftops are also being employed for farming. In cities around the world, growers are taking advantage of open space on top of buildings. Herbs, greens, coffee, and vegetables are being grown in urban environments to offer incredibly fresh produce. Some restaurants are even creating roof greenhouses to establish a place to grow nearby.
“This trend is a reflection of a growing movement against corporations and corporate farming,” says Daniel Levine. “Consumers want to know where their food is coming from. They want to be certain it is safe and certain it is healthy. This trend is a response to the growing desire for small-scale, non-corporate eating.”
