Seeker Stories goes inside an old Newark, New Jersey laser tag arena to see how Aerofarms uses advanced vertical farming techniques to maximize crop output while reducing environmental impact. These vertical farms use 95% less water than field farming and help eliminate the need to transport harvested food long distances.

There’s a revolution happening in the way food is grown around the world. Vertical farming stacks crops on top of one another in a climate controlled, indoor facility, and utilizes advanced technology to produce food in the most environmentally friendly way the world has ever seen.
