Eating greens is an excellent idea, although one can et too much of them, especially spinach. But should taxpayers pay $17.00/pound for kale?

(From Reason)

On Wednesday the city council of Jersey City, New Jersey will vote on awarding a three-year, $1 million contract to the company AeroFarms to build 11 vertical gardens on city properties…

…The idea of bringing vertical farming to Jersey City is part of a broader initiative of the Swiss-based World Economic Forum to create public-private partnerships that will “design and support socially vibrant, and health and well-being centric communities in cities.”
