Growing underground: Farming directly under the Northern Line

24
Feb

Soon to hit the shelves: our very own urban & local, natural, carbon-neutral, pesticide-free produce created directly below the morning commute… Too cool to be true? Nope!

The project was initiated by British entrepreneurs Richard Ballard and Steven Dring who have since partnered with Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux Jr.

Creations will include micro-shoots, edible flowers and miniature vegetables for wholesale supply to restaurants and supermarkets. Produce should be going on sale this summer, and will be pesticide free and carbon-neutral.

With produce growing approximately underneath Clapham North station on the Northern Line, food miles will be drastically cut, allowing us to eat more local than is currently possibly on a large scale.
