all over Hull even in the most unlikely places like subway stations Kim bo-gyung

happening at a Seoul metro station where you can see an indoor vertical farm the
Seoul Metropolitan Government in the farm ate an agriculture firm recently
opened the first Metro farm in South Korea at sangdo station on seoul subway

unused spaces and carry out urban farming sango Metro farm is an urban
smart farm which uses information and communication technology to control the
farms conditions making it easier to grow crops exotic vegetable breeds are
cultivated with the help of an automated system which manages temperature
humidity acidity and provides them with nutrients it also allows partial access
to people passing by and a viewing window where they can look at how smart
farms operate while also providing clean air if we conduct smart farming in metro
stations plants can use carbon dioxide which people breathe out for
photosynthesis and people can breathe in the oxygen that plants produce there is
also a facility called Otto farm in which a robot manages the entire farming
process this container sized indoor farm cultivates young leaves for harvest when
they are fully grown people can enjoy the vegetables that are harvested from
these facilities at a cafe located right next to the farms in the form of salads
and juices I came in here for the first time after just passing by for several
days I think it is very nice that it provides us with oxygen and fresh
vegetables within the city another urban smart farm has also opened a tab Samana
station and they will open in three other subway locations including two
terminal station within this year the city government and far mates are
looking forward to creating more urban smart farms in the long term so the
people can enjoy crops at lower prices and become more aware of the latest in
