Global demand for organically and locally grown food is continuously growing given the pandemic and lack of access to travel. Environmental issues also affect traditional farming which makes it harder to produce accessible goods. As experts work towards achieving a sustainable solution to food insecurity, shifting to vertical farming from traditional agriculture may take some time. This modern farming method serves as a new way to produce accessible farm-to-table food even in global remote areas and communities.
