This is the Yangling Smart Agriculture Demonstration Park. It's one of the exhibition areas of the China Yangling Agricultural Hi-tech Fair. It's also a modern agriculture training center for Shanghai Cooperation Organization members.

One of the visitors observing the vegetables growing without sunlight is Bayan, a student from Kazakhstan.
