I hope you all don't mind me putting this in here. If there is a better place, then please let me know, but I thought it'd be of interest to some like minded people who want to grow food locally anywhere they might be. Today I came across the concept of growing food in shipping containers. These are climate controlled and fully regulated high tech rigs that retail off the shelf for 50-60K.

They claim to be able to do some amazing things. Check out the links below:

Does anyone have any experience with these? They make some amazing claims.

Apologies for being a bit off topic, but I thought it might interest some people here.

Thanks
