Freight Farms allows crops to be grown inside shipping containers

Freight Farms, a startup that has found a way to grow crops inside shipping containers, features in the latest video in our Dezeen x MINI Living series. The organisation has developed a hydroponic farming system called The Leafy Green Machine. It uses this hi-tech growing technology to transform discarded freight vessels into mobile farm units. Each farm occupies 320 square metres of space, but Freight Farms claims that each one can produce as much food as a two-acre plot of land. Inside, seeds are planted in trays and exposed to LED grow lights until they sprout. The seedlings are then transplanted into vertical hydroponic planters, and fed nutrient-rich water from ceiling spigots that flow into artificial root systems. In order to monitor and manage conditions inside the farm, Freight Farms has produced a smartphone app called Farmhand. Lighting, temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide levels inside the farm can be controlled remotely using this app. Read more on Dezeen: https://www.dezeen.com/"p=1117912 WATCH NEXT: Henning Larsen's Etobicoke Civic Centre shelters public square from cold winds - https://youtu.be/hVKh6AKRUCE Subscribe to our YouTube channel for the latest architecture and design movies: http://bit.ly/1tcULvh Like Dezeen on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/dezeen/ Follow Dezeen on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Dezeen/ Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dezeen/ Check out our Pinterest: https://uk.pinterest.com/dezeen/
