A negosyo idea from a converted shipping container that contains all the tools, tech and training communities to take control of their local food requirements.

The company is Farm from a Box which provides an off-grid toolkit for communities anywhere in the world. They will deliver the shipping container which contains everything needed for a two-acre farm. Once at the destination, the containers double in size to provide the physical and technological base for managing the plot. Designed to erase the problem of food deserts, each farm could produce enough food to feed up to 150 people or earn significant income for owners choosing to grow cash crops.

Inside each box are an irrigation system, a pumping system, basic farm tools, a solar power kit and an Internet of Things management system. Each order is customized to the buyer’s climate and purpose, and additional or different modules can be supplied. Farm from a Box is currently raising funds on Republic and is already fully funded. The company’s prototype farm has proved a success, and the funding will be used to improve manufacturing and supply chains for commercial production.

This is another great negosyo idea from a shipping container, do you have other great ideas like this made from a container van?
