This Sci-Fi Plan to Beat Rising Seas Could Change the Way We Live – if It Works

The world’s first floating farm will soon welcome aboard 40 cows. Built in Rotterdam harbor in the Netherlands, the “cow garden” and high-tech dairy farm are nearing completion. “The building is as good as ready, we are now installing and testing the machines, and in four weeks the cows will arrive,” says Peter Beladon, the developer behind the farm. The floating farm plans to recycle cow waste, grow grass, produce milk and yogurt onsite, harvest rainwater and use its own solar energy. This floating prototype may not be as fantastical as it sounds, even in a country where pastureland stretches for miles around. As sea levels rise, and there is ever less land for a growing urban population, this farm could be a precursor to entire floating cities in the future.
