Growing Underground grow mouth-wateringly fresh micro greens and salad leaves 33 metres below the busy streets of Clapham. Using the latest hydroponic systems and LED technology, the crops are grown sustainably year-round in the perfect, pesticide-free environment that these forgotten tunnels provide. Thanks to a controlled environment, each tiny leaf tastes as amazing as the last.
Growing Underground prioritise sustainable growing practices, and are working towards carbon neutral certification. The hydroponics system uses 70% less water than traditional open-field farming, and all nutrients are kept within the closed-loop system removing any risk of agricultural run-off. The greens are unaffected by the weather and seasonal changes, and thanks to their prime location, the need to import crops is reduced and this drastically cuts food miles for retailers and consumers. It's something that they care about, which is why their produce travels no further than the M25.
Currently Growing Underground supplies several retailers, wholesalers, local restaurants, and Londoners through Farmdrop.
