In Rochester New York a new floral design space was recently unveiled in a local neighborhood for a project called Greentopia by Green Visions. The space was built from a repurposed shipping container and was designed as a way to help the community in their local garden.
Sustainable growth is an imperative for farmers in the U.S. As import costs rise, Americans are finding alternative ways to locally grow. One of those innovative ways is through shipping container farms. Using a 40 foot shipping container, something Cherokee West can offer, container farms, otherwise known as Terra Farms, offer the ability to use less water- as low as 5 gallons for specific kinds of growth such as kale, lettuce and strawberries.
