Food production becomes part of urban daily life again.
REVIEWS, FEEDBACK, TESTIMONIALS
“up!“ by Dr. Daniel Podmirseg compares and contrasts in detail the global input (land use, energy, water, etc.) needed to feed 9.4 billion people using traditional and non-traditional farming technologies. It further examines the impact of these two agricultural approaches from a climate, social, and political perspective.
This exhaustive body of work presents the best view so far published on what the world would be like if alternative agricultural strategies were employed to feed some 9.6 billion people.
"up" is a blueprint for how to proceed into the next millennium, enabling humans to finally achieve a peaceful co-existence with the rest of nature.

Dr. Podmirseg makes a timely and compelling case for the integration of food within the city limits, with the vertical farm as a means to that end. With his help we are one step closer to understanding how to get it right.
