Podponics have already built a shipping container food grow system, but now you can help these ninjas build their initial unit. Freight Farms claim that this is a container for really any environment. Replacing food miles and creating local commerce for the urban citizen- 20k to go…
Freight Farms are easy to use systems that increase local fresh food access, create a local food economy, keep money in the community and decrease the carbon footprint of food production. The system is designed to be largely self sustained with rainwater reclamation and a full filtration system to supply the necessary water. The electrical use is minimized by the system design and high efficiency components and will be powered by electricity from solar panels attached to the top of the freight container. Solar energy will provide the majority of electricity that is needed while a traditional connection will allow the unit to be plugged in when/if necessary.
