Ag Book: The Vertical Farm Project


I recently read “The Vertical Farm”  by Dr. Dickson Despommier.  I find urban agriculture to be fascinating and have loved visiting some rooftop farms in Brooklyn.  As the world population grows, we are not getting more land to help grow our food.  In fact, each year we get less and less farmable land due to urban encroachment.  I don’t think that urban agriculture is the key to global food security but I think it’s is part of the solution.  It’s a way for the world to grow more food on less acres and encourage local agriculture in urban communities.

Rincker Law, PLLC is available to work with urban farms on a myriad of legal issues, including urban farm leases, contracts, employment law, and food law.
