Ikea is bringing a pop-up vertical farm to London

Lisa Bowman for Metro.co.uk:  Ikea are bringing a pop-up vertical farm to Shoreditch, as part of the London Design Festival.

Researchers from the SPACE10 lab at the Lokal pop-up want to show the general public that delicious, fresh food can be grown right in your home, using a hydroponics farming system.

It’s basically soil-less farming – crops are grown indoors using artificial lights and computerised automation that grows food optimised for freshness, nutrients, and taste.

They say it makes food production smarter and more efficient as their system can grow vegetables three times faster than traditional methods, with 90% less water, less waste, and without the need for soil and sunlight in a much more space-efficient footprint.  Full Article:
