In case you may not have realised, my name is Alex – and I’m fascinated by vertical farming. It’s a breathtaking way to grow high-quality food, whilst leaving a minimal environmental impact.

When I was 16, I started dabbling in hydroponics at home. This sprouted into an obsession with indoor growing and vertical farming. Last year I started studying biosystems engineering in Wageningen.

My aim is to play a meaningful role in improving vertical farming. This blog is a documentation of the interesting experiences I encounter on this adventure.
