Growing Underground

Science & Technology

Engineering artificial growing environments so that food can be produced close to the city centre

Speaker: Richard Ballard - Co-Founder and Farmer-in-Chief, Zero Carbon Farms

Richard Ballard started an agricultural revolution along with business partner Steven Dring in the form of Growing Underground. Located 100ft under the streets of London in disused WW2 Air Raid Shelter, this subterranean urban farm sustainably produces micro-greens and baby leaf using the latest LED technology. The duo are now delivering fresh hyper-local produce to retailers and the London wholesale markets.

Sustainably feeding the city from within the city, Richard is obsessed by all things green tech and the future of cities. In his talk he will explain how the process works and how yields can increase multiple times by optimising the growing environment.
