Vertical farming's mission to localize, decarbonize and democratize food production

Urban Oasis, a vertical farm in Sweden uses innovative technology to grow crops in shelf-like structures that aims to maximize output and be more sustainable in its agricultural practices. Instead of soil, it uses nutrient-rich water, which allows the farm to not use pesticides and reduce their energy consumption. While challenges remain with scaling their operations, their produce is already sold in stores and has received a positive response from the local community.
