Greenhouses are a vital part of our cities to cultivate agriculture and encourage the consumption and growth of local produce. Thankfully, designer Damien Chivialle has found a new way to revitalize the greenhouse using old shipping containers, and the result is beautiful. His "Urban Farm Units" are more portable than they look, with extendable roofs and other adjustable components to fit the community's needs. It's nice to see shipping containers and other discarded items get recycled in such beneficial ways.
