Vertical Farms: Could it work?

We love vertical farms on Revolution Greens and we thank our friends at Treehugger for showing us this. Even with the genius of these vertical farms some question whether they make any sense. Perhaps if they were downsized and brought into our homes they might be just what we need. "This Biophere home farm contains fish, crustaceans, algae, plants and other mini-ecosystems, all interdependent and in balance with each other."  The image above comes from Philips Design.  Clive van Heerden, Senior Director of design-led innovation at Philips Design says in apress release:
"People are increasingly concerned about how their food has been manipulated and processed, genetic modification, global shortages, environmental degradation through monoculture, the distance food travels before reaching their plates and many other related issues," says van Heerden. "One way of addressing such legitimate concerns is to source the food yourself by having a biosphere in your living room."
