Freight Farms, a Boston-based company that retrofits shipping containers with vertical farming technology, is partnering with Federal Realty Investment Trust, the people who brought you Linden Square. Together, they hope to transform the asphalt jungle of unused parking spaces in Linden Square into productive “farmland” capable in a 320 square-foot shipping container of producing the same amount of food as two acres of traditionally imagined fields.
This is all in the very early stages, but if there are any local farmers out there who are interested, perhaps this is the opportunity you’ve been looking for.

But there are no unused parking spaces. Ever.
How is this supposed to beautify Linden Square?

“unused parking spaces”? Maybe very early in the morning or very late at night, but not at peak times during the day. Nice idea, though.
