Tthree Berliners have earmarked a massive former factory roof for an unusual urban agriculture venture. The sustainable set-up will produce both vegetables and fish for local residents and could be a model for future city farms.

Good idea - not new but big time. Interesting to see people talking about possible food shortages. I didn't really think about this but locally grown produce around the world would be a great idea and give local regions work as well as good food. It would help a lot if things were controlled so much by the corporations of the food industry and the meat industry and if world meat consumption was greatly reduced.

The only way to address food security and food equity and really drive at "local foods" is to produce them in your city! Living in NYC, our farmers markets and CSOs are growing like crazy which is wonderful, but most of the foods people consume in the winter needs to be shipped in (fruit does not grow in February). It is also used as an economic development tool and may be a great idea to reintroduce recently released incarcerated people without applicable skills... so much here
