dc.description.abstractThe City of Buffalo is need of revitalization. Vacant lots, a declining economy, widespread poverty, and a lack of employment opportunities are just a few of the issues that the City needs to address. The City should consider implementing innovative policies, such as investing in and operating a hydroponic urban farm. Hydroponic farming is highly productive and requires a fraction of the resources of traditional farming. Although hydroponic farms are expensive to get started, they are ideal for urban areas because they can operate successfully on as little or as much land as is available. The City could also take advantage of State, Federal and private funding to help mitigate some of the startup costs. A hydroponic farm would be a creative reuse for Buffalo’s many vacant lots and brownfields, as hydroponic farming does not require soil.
