The need for local and high quality food production has been increasing at the global level. People are mostly living in the cities without gardens and space for producing their own high quality food. Vertical gardens allow them to produce food on a small space, connect them with nature and assure them more healthy lifestyle despite the lack of time. An important argument for further encouraging this development is the fact that biodynamic horticulture has decisively reduced the impact on the environment and has a smaller environmental footprint. The improvement of work conditions, increase of self-sufficiency, competitiveness, employment chance of persons with mental and physical disabilities can be increased by installing vertical gardens.
