3.5 Acres Growing in a Container – Dale Speetjens’ ShipShape Urban Farms Takes Farming Inside
Posted On April 13, 2020
Dale Speetjens’ idea originated while working on the Mayor’s blight campaign in Mobile – how can a little bit of property be turned into a garden. Today he has shipping containers with intricate workings inside that can grow the equivalent of 3 1/2 acres of leafy greens on constant rotation. Target customers are military campaigns abroad and urban centers away from growers where the transport causes food to lose its freshness. And the cost is cheap compared to the time needed to recoup your money selling your vegetables for traditional prices. It’s the combination of next gen technology with the latest agricultural science.
