Behind-the-Scenes with Brick Street Farms
We visited St. Petersburg’s Brick Street Farms in the dead of summer — the Florida heat and humidity were stifling. Good thing Brick Street grows things inside!
Brick Street Farms is part of the urban farming revolution that’s going on across this nation, where people are growing food anywhere and everywhere — rooftops, community gardens and back porches.
Farms like Brick Street have taken that a step further. Everything they produce grows in converted refrigerated shipping containers — the same kind that things arrive in on ships and you see on the back of flatbed trailers behind semi-trucks.
