I am interested in small-scale backyard farming and thought this book would be helpful when I ordered it from the library. Instead, it is about commercial farming in skyscraper-like structures. I found the concept fascinating, if a little unpractical. I like the idea of gardening up to maximize space on inner city lots, but find it hard to believe that companies would want to lay out the money on an unproven technology in an economically disadvantaged area. I disagree with the author's contention that philanthropic groups and city governments would want to support this project. I think vertical farming may eventually become a reality, but it will, as usual, benefit those who have the money to pay first.
