The global population is predicted to grow to more than nine billion people by 2050, and with all those extra people will come a need to find more sustainable ways of producing our foods. Square Roots was founded by Tobias Peggs and Kimbal Musk in 2016, and is one of the companies driving an urban farming revolution. Square Roots is building vertical farms in shipping containers, and training a new generation of farmers, in their quest to bring food production closer to where people actually eat it.
