Restaurant gets fresh herbs from nature strip
Chef Emile Avramides, a graduate of the exacting kitchens of Gordon Ramsay's Maze restaurants in London and Melbourne, has chosen a quiet shopping strip in Randwick to debut his Sydney restaurant, Clove Lane. A clever reason for this location is to grow fresh herbs for the restaurant on the adjoining nature strip. http://www.goodfood.com.au/eat-out/news/maze-graduate-to-open-clove-lane-in-randwick-20170309-guv1ld

Seaweed farming to combat climate change
Seaweeds can grow very fast at rates more than 30 times those of land-based plants. Because they de-acidify seawater, making it easier for anything with a shell to grow, they are also the key to shellfish production. And by drawing CO2 out of the ocean waters (thereby allowing the oceans to absorb more CO2 from the atmosphere) they help fight climate change. https://theconversation.com/how-farming-giant-seaweed-can-feed-fish-and-fix-the-climate-81761

Vertical Farming. Turning your walls into gardens for year-round harvest.
In the largest agriculture-tech funding round in history, vertical farming startup "Plenty" attracted US$200 million. Some experts say the investment could make the indoor farming industry more viable as a whole. Instead of growing greens outdoors, the farm grows its food on glowing, LED-lit 20-foot-tall towers inside a former electronics distribution center in South San Francisco. The towers don't require pesticides or natural sunlight. The technique is called indoor vertical farming. Food grows on trays or hanging modules in a climate-controlled, indoor facility. The process is revolutionary. Certain types of food could be produced year-round, anywhere, in a small space. http://www.businessinsider.com/food-investment-vertical-farming-2017-8/
