Truck Farm Veggiemobile

Amazing! These guys from Brooklyn, New York have started their own Truck Farm! Not what you'd normally think of as a green vehicle, but they use a 1986 Dodge Ram to grow rows of vegetables. They call themselves Wicked Delicate and they're producing a series of music video shorts with lyrics. Watch this short 'teaser'.

Getting Truck Farm started, holes had to be drilled into the bed for drainage. Alive Structures, an NYC-based company that specializes in rainwater management helped with a root barrier, erosion blanket, drainage mat and cups which are usually reserved for green roofs. Last, but not least, the soil that lies in Truck Farm’s bed is not just regular dirt - it is a special lightweight blend of styrofoam, gel, organics, and clay.

A truck that drives your veggies to customers to pluck straight out of the soil with their own hands!

You can watch the whole series of Wicked Delicate shorts here. Below is Episode 1. The music's great, too!
