Vertical Farming is very cool.
I’ve seen some of this type of growing personally and it makes a lot of sense to “go up”. When we farm laterally on the ground, we are limited by the land we have available to us. Growing vertically opens up all kinds of possibilities. Walmart just got into the vertical farming game with an investment in “Plenty”. Vertical Farming not only is more space economizing, it also provides for the opportunity for much cleaner, controlled and organic growth. Vertical Farming is a great example of pushing ourselves to think different about how we work. What do we have in front of us that we need to think different and maybe break the way we always did it in the past?
The Bible is full of references of farming; readying the soil, planting, watering, tending and harvesting. And wherever we read the references, we learn that what we plant, we will reap. In First Corinthians Paul tells us that we also much have faith in what we plant. I like this a lot because indeed, when we look at the seed, we can’t see what will come from it. Maybe that is why we are called to be knowledgeable about what are the seeds that we have to plant so that we don’t sow what would not be desired at the time it grows. So, today we are doing our own Vertical Farming. What we are growing is what we are planting and if we look up to our Father to guide our minds and hands, then we will be planting the seeds that He wants us to enjoy in His harvest to come.
