American farming giant Bowery has made progesss in vertical-farming, manipulating light, humidity, temperature, and other conditions to grow produce. The systems are designed to produce a sanitary crop, so there is little risk of contamination from bacteria like E. Coli. These huge farms grow produce in nutrient-rich water, not the healthy soil that many people believe is at the heart of both deliciousness and nutrition and they can consume vast amounts of electricity. Below are some images of the process.
