And even while they’re more expensive the vegetables are already selling faster than they can be grown. If the farms prove sustainable – both technologically and economically – they could provide a much desired supplement to Singapore’s locally grown food and serve as a model for farming in other land-challenged areas."
Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves
up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
