Greywater and Vertical Farms

Columbia University Medical University Professor Dickson Despommier developed the concept of vertical farms to meet the food needs of the 21st Century as described in this short video of the concept, as well as accompanying interview of Dr. Despommier. His book The Vertical Farm has received mostly favorable reviews. One of his colleagues pans the book here. The connection to greywater? According to the book reviewer "Along the way we learn just how destructive big cities can be -- New York City alone discards 1 billion gallons a day of grey water".

Perhaps more interesting than the concept of vertical farms are some of the conceptual models of the *green* buildings which can be viewed here. And Sting is apparently making a movie about Vertical Farms. Can't get enough ideas about how this might work, check out more images here.

Thinking about greywater reuse gets bigger all time.
