Modular farming

Buildings similar to storage lockers could be built. ( employment for the trades)

in those buildings would house CONTAINER FARMS. (employment for manufactures)

The buildings provide a control environment for the container farms.

Reneable energies technologies could power the farms; solar, wind, geothermal.(employment for the New trades)

The container farms would be used to grow eatable products such as lettuce, herbs etc. under led lights and hydroponic environment.

The farms would provide year around employment for Growers/ Agricultural / Administrators / Supply chain / Retailers.

Why is this an ambitious idea?

This is an ambitious idea because of the positive impact it can have on the environment and employment. Normally container farming requires less space to produce a far greater yield. to feed the entire population of Calgary many building would be needed thus more work and potentially sell the produce to other cities.
the standard green house does not work in Calgary or there would be a great number of green houses around. that is why this is ambitious.
If Calgarians know where their vegetables are coming from and grown naturally maybe we would eat more vegetables and be a healthier city. this would also benefit the AHS.

How do we measure the effectiveness of this idea?

By Yield of produce.
By employment numbers
By lower co2 emissions
By Financial data. Profit.

How is this idea attainable through the use of technology or data?

The use of computers could create the perfect environment for plants to thrive.
Data can help to determine the most beneficial and financial rewarding produce to grow.
Create the demand for renewable energy. the Buildings themselves could be used as power plants to collect and store wind and solar power to self sustain.
