Vertical Hydroponic Shipping Container
Check out this vertical hydroponic shipping container – called the Leafy Green Machine (LGM).
“ROBBINSVILLE, NJ – (November 28, 2017) – In a progressive nod to its deep farming roots dating back to the early 1800s, Robbinsville Township is the first municipality in the State of New Jersey to install a vertical hydroponic farm capable of growing fresh, healthy and local produce.
The exciting new program is built around a vertical hydroponic shipping container…capable of growing the marketable equivalent of 1.8 acres of conventional farmland, with 90 percent less water than conventional farming, no pesticides/herbicides, and all materials contained within 320 square feet.”
