The Farmery [1] is a start-up in Raleigh, N.C. that is developing an urban farm [2] and market built from shipping containers [3] and standard greenhouse components. The bottom level serves as a market to sell the crops, and the entire structure is used to grow the crops. The structure uses the inside of the containers to grow mushrooms, and the walls of the containers are covered in growing panels to form living walls [4] where herbs, strawberries, lettuces and greens are grown.
