Shipping Container Nursery,Podponics!.

Matt Liotta, founder of Atlanta-based start-up, PodPonics, aims to offer the ability to grow organic hydroponic lettuce locally in specially outfitted recycled shipping containers.

These computer-controlled environmental systems have a bunch of great features:

  • regulate temperature, humidity, pH levels and carbon dioxide
  • outfitted with organic hydroponic nutrient solutions
  • lights emit a specific spectrum at different points in the day to provide the exact amount of water, light and nutrients that a crop requires so there’s no wasted energy
  • 320 square feet produces an acre’s worth of produce
  • can be stacked on top of each other for maximum use of space
  • lettuce & micro greens can be grown at or near the point of consumption, year-round
