Your rooftop farm is cute and all, but this garden in a box could be the true solution to growing produce in urban environments.
Short on space but hankering for some fresh vegetables? The $70,000 Agri-Cube might be the answer to your problems. Developed by Japan’s Daiwa House Industry, the parking space-sized cube can grow leafy greens and root vegetables like turnips and radishes.
The self-contained system comes with a water recycling system and adjustable fluorescent lighting (instead of sunlight) to nourish the plants. Under the right conditions, the cube can grow up to 10,000 heads of lettuce per year–all for approximately 45 cents a vegetable, when electricity costs are taken into account, according DigInfo.
