This is especially necessary for areas poor with organic material (rocky Mediterranean islands come to mind) where people surround their plots of land with rocks to prevent the wind and storms from blowing away all the soil.

Thank you Jamila! Why does vertical farming require more power?

The power expenditure comes from artificial conditions such as hydroponic nutrient delivery, lighting, ideal climate. Being able to sustain this with renewable power would be ideal.

Thank you Darko! This has always occupied a tiny part of my brain. I hope this session flourishes enough (with both criticism and constructive suggestions) to create a holistic guideline for sustainability enthusiasts.

Very interesting session. I almost jumped in a few times while reading the description but decided to postpone my contributions as the session turned more demanding and systemic with every additional rule:)
