Shipping containers have already proven themselves to be used for far more than shipping goods across the country, or across the ocean. The tiny house movement has made good use of them for several years now, and one company out of California has decided to take it one step further.
Sustainable farming has become a hot-button issue over the last five to 10 years, but "Farm from a Box" has come up with a way to let the average person create their own "micro-farms."
The units come in three different sizes: 10 feet, 20 feet, and 40 feet. Each unit is also equipped with all the necessary equipment, including a backup generator, to ensure your farm gets everything it needs to grow and flourish.
They include: solar panels, built in WiFi, an irrigation system, weather tracking systems, seedlings, farming equipment, and even a training program for people who need a little help getting things going.
And each unit is capable of growing crops on a hectare of land, or 2.47 acres.
