Introduce students to vertical farming, the new major trend of high-tech farms popping up in cities. Help them consider population growth, depleting farmland, climate change, and finally discuss whether the future of farming is to bring them into our cities. High tech vertical farms use aeroponics or hydroponics. Examples include an underground farm in London and a Japanese office building with a rice paddy field. Vertical farming isn't just in the US, it's growing in popularity around the globe with people and companies investing in creating new ways and technology to provide a more sustainable future. Here are some companies and people making an investment in new-age farming ideas Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Leonardo DiCaprio, and even the former McDonalds CEO Don Thompson.

Is vertical farming pushing the technology of farming and agriculture forward or should we keep our feet on the ground? Highlighted in the video include AeroFarms, Growing Underground, Square Roots, the Open Agriculture Initiative, Persona Group, Farm One, Bowery, Plenty, Impossible Foods, and Beyond Meat.
