An urban laboratory for farming technology
How can we make urban agriculture more efficient and in this way facilitate a greater development of green cities?
A growing trend in the development of smart, “future” cities and communities, is urban farming – the practice of cultivating, processing and distributing food in or around urban areas.
By growing fruits and vegetables in urban areas, residents can increase their food security, add valuable green space to their communities, and reduce carbon emissions by limiting the transportation of food from rural areas.
Norway is one of the places where urban farming is becoming increasingly popular, and Inventas og CGI consultants in Oslo banded together to brainstorm how technology can be used to improve urban farming processes. The result is a high-tech, thriving garden on the rooftop of our Oslo office called the Urban Farm Lab.
