An apartment building with private hydroponic gardens

This new apartment building that's going up in Wuhan, China, has a pretty unique element to it: private hydroponic gardens for every apartment. Yes, every unit in the tower has a 100-square-foot trellised hydroponic garden that's designed to produce fresh vegetables all year round.

In addition to providing a relaxing and great space attached to each apartment, it offers up a renewable food source for a family living there, making it both stylish and functional. It's a wonderful idea, one that would be great to see in the plant-starved cities here in America as well. Who wouldn't want their own hydroponic garden, after all?
