France’s first ‘vertical farm’ sets its sights on sustainability

Château-Thierry (France) (AFP) - There’s no soil and no sunshine, just stacks of boxes of microgreens and herbs, robot sprinklers and LED lights at France’s first ‘vertical farm’. The aromatic plants grown by Jungle company in a hangar in the northern French town Château-Thierry will soon supply the national supermarket chain Monoprix. Eventually, it is expected to produce eight million plants a year without any of them ever seeing the light of day.
