🌿Vertical Farming Weekly - March 4th, 2022

Happy Friday everyone, and happy one month anniversary to the all-new Vertical Farming Weekly! We would like to thank all of our subscribers and listeners, new and returning, for supporting the Vertical Farming Podcast and Vertical Farming Weekly. You all rock!

Okay, back to the newsletter part-

This week in Vertical Farming we have some interesting topics. The main one being Carbon Footprint. As fuel and energy prices rise around the globe is CEA really as sustainable as we think?

Also, CEA is booming overseas as Singapore gets closer to completing its first large-scale vertical farm, while the Russian invasion in Ukraine threatens the local agriculture industry.

All that, and more, just a few dozen pixels down.

Recently, a few key investors in Farm.One’s most recent round of funding pulled out, putting the company at risk of shutting down. In the words of Robert Laing, “This is the emergency parachute cord that I am pulling right now.
