Vertical farming is the practice of producing food and medicine in vertically stacked layers, vertically inclined surfaces and/or integrated in other structures (such as in a skyscraper, used warehouse, or shipping container).
Really, economics is about values. What ends are we aiming for? What goods and services are of most value?
Food forests (or forest gardening) are a gardening or land management technique that seek to create a forest – usually in an urban environment – that is entirely devoted to growing edible plants.
Values based supply chains are more transparent and build community. Benefits include cost sharing, market access, flexibility, and healthier economies.

In Kindling Radio’s first episode, my good friend Lisa Pellegrino and I have a long discussion about trash, the circular economy, and more.
