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

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’.

Eventually, it is expected to produce eight million plants a year without any of them ever seeing the light of day.
