The Milk Crate Farm

Restaurants across America have hit on a novel idea. Instead of buying in their vegetables from local farms, they’re growing their own on roof top gardens and bits of waste land near to their premises. How do they do that? By planting in old milk crates? As you might imagine, I know nothing about growing vegetables at all, let alone the process of growing them in milk crates,  but if it can be done in a busy city centre like New York or Los Angeles, it can surely be done pretty much anywhere.

Would it be possible for UK restaurant owners to ‘grow their own’ in this manner? I don’t see why not. Might it be possible for an entrepreneur without land or experience to set up a milk crate farm supplying local restaurants? Very possibly.

This would take a bit more research, but it sounds an interesting idea.
