  • De-acidify, purify and buffer rainwater,
  • Are self-sufficient in sustainable energy
  • Consume CO2 and releases O2
  • Saves degrading soil and biodiversity by decreasing the land need twenty-fold per floor for a given yield.
  • Creates jobs, boosts economically fragile streets and encourages local market and neighborhood interactions.
