  Skyscraper Farm: Innovation at the Nexus of Food, Energy, and Water Systems - Mobilizing Virginia Tech to Feed the World  
(Seminar/Conference)

Nick Starling, chairman of Skyscraper Farm LLC (http://www.skyscraper.farm/home.html), has researched vertical farming since 2011.

Starling has discovered a variety of improvements needed if the vertical farm industry is to reach its potential: feeding the world while dramatically reducing water usage (from 70 percent of the world's water to less than 10 percent) and eliminating agricultural runoff.

Please contact Lesley Mitchell (lesleyg@vt.edu) if you would like to meet with Starling following the seminar; he is interested in collaborating with Virginia Tech.
