Freight Farm

 

Maryville is planting new seeds of sustainability by hosting the only Freight Farm in the state of Missouri and one of the few in the nation. This farm-in-a-box is built entirely inside a 40-foot long shipping container and provides a suitable environment to grow produce 365 days a year. The freight farm can be found between the DUC and the University Library. For more information, please contact Olivia Engel at oengel@freshideasfood.com.
