The Farm Proper is an experimental mobile farm in San Diego, California. Abandoned shopping carts are used to grow food, which helps to clean up the city and support urban farmers.

The Farm Proper is a collaboration between Set & Drift and mi-workshop. This is an awesome idea; San Diego has the perfect climate for year-around farming. Communities in the city could benefit from learning how to farm, as groceries aren't cheap and the cost of living is high. Stats for Shopping Cart Farms Trending: Older & Mild
