Vertical Field is partaking in the first-of-its-kind research that brings together foremost experts and state-of-the-art resources and technologies to empirically explore the capacity of vertical growing systems.
We have partnered with several leading research institutions- in the largest known living walls experiment- to methodologically study and quantify the impacts and opportunities of smart vertical solutions (as they relate to and inform Nature Based Solutions (NBS)).
We are proud partners of this pioneering bi-national study led by Professor Itamar Lensky at Bar-Ilan University in Israel, conducted in conjunction with the University of Nanjing in China, and sponsored by the Israeli Ministry of Science and Technology and the Israel Science Foundation. The project aims to monitor the environmental, health and economic benefits (both direct and indirect) of living walls on the indoor and outdoor urban environment by using agricultural precision and other scientific methods.
The ultimate goal of the research is to produce an empirical database of living walls that can inform cities who want to reach Carbon Neutrality (Carbon Neutral Cities) as well as other economic and health models for large-scale sustainable development initiatives worldwide.
We strive to deliver and pave the way for more science-based innovations that improve the health of our cities, the planet, and overall human wellbeing.
