Many of us would have seen the recent confirmation of the world's population exceeding 8 billion. This increase has significant consequences for the people responsible for processing our food.
To meet the ever-growing population needs, food production will need to increase by 56% to meet demand alone! The added difficulties of climate change create more volatile weather than ever before, simultaneously flooding or scorching our farmer's fields. Despite this, 80% of farms globally are still family-run units. The responsibility of such a task lies with only a few.
Fortunately, we have the technology available to remedy a solution.
Vertical Farming is a concept that can provide food regardless of climate and location. Vertical Farming technologies can be used to access safe, fresh and substantial food as we learn to navigate this ever-changing world.
The Association for Vertical Farming is the leading global non-profit organisation that raises awareness and connects critical stakeholders to advance the implementation of vertical Farming.

As David Attenborough so eloquently put it; "If working apart we are a force powerful to destabilise our planet, surely working together we are powerful enough to save it."
