The promise of vertical farms and other urban agriculture projects once seemed like way-off dreams of the ag-tech set. No longer is this the case.

In this episode, delve into the vision with Robert Laing, the CEO of Farm.One; Alina Zolotareva, the senior marketing manager at AeroFarms; and Henry Gordon-Smith, the managing director of Agritecture.
