Kimbal Musk, the brother of Tesla CEO Elon Musk, is trying to change the way we eat by creating what he calls a "real-food revolution".
Musk's latest food venture delves into the world of local urban farming. The Square Roots farm is in Brooklyn and everything grows inside 320-square-foot steel shipping containers. Each container can produce about 50,000 mini-heads of lettuce a year.
On four parallel walls, leafy greens and herbs sprout from soil-free growing beds filled with nutrient-rich water. Instead of sunlight, they rely on hanging blue and pink LED rope lights.
The Square Roots' shipping container farm runs on 10 gallons of recycled water a day, which is less than an average shower's worth. These vertical farms can grow crops all year, using significantly less water and space than outdoor farms.
