Visionary Londoners prototype a new way for urban communities to localize the production of fresh, sustainable food.

This is just awesome. It’s a shipping container that contains a farm – well a greenhouse under which is large tank for a fish farm – you only need add water to create a closed-loop environment. Plants are grown in the greenhouse – up to 200 kilograms of salad each year, some of which provides a food source for the fish – it will provide up to 60kgs of fish a year. Their waste is then pumped-up to the greenhouse in order to fertilise the plants. Ingenious or what!
