All over the world people are learning to grow food in urban centers again.  Armed with some new tech and fresh thinking, output is thriving on roof tops, in warehouses, vertical surfaces and vacant land. Healthy food for less, with a fraction of the carbon footprint. This is what smart looks like. See  Paris to turn a third of its green space into urban farms:

“It all started when the city’s mayor, Anne Hidalgo, who was elected in 2014, declared her intention to make Paris a greener city. The Paris government responded to her call in 2016 by launching Parisculteurs, a project which aims to cover the city’s rooftops and walls with 100 hectares (247 acres) of vegetation by 2020. One third of the green space, according to its plan, should be dedicated to urban farming.”
