Growing Underground: New hydroponic Salads

Growing Underground: New hydroponic Salads

Monday, 20th February 2017

Like most great ideas, Growing Underground was born over a pint (or three).
After debating the future of feeding rapidly expanding populations in overflowing cities, Richard, Steven and Chris stumbled over the idea of using London’s empty, forgotten underground tunnels as the backdrop for growing the city’s freshest greens.

At “Growing Underground” we use the latest hydroponic growing techniques and LED lights to grow sustainable and mouth-wateringly crisp greens with minimal impact on the environment. Our re-purposed WW2 air raid shelters provide a surprisingly ideal home for our greens, offering a perfectly controlled environment that allows us to grow our salads year-round no matter the conditions outside. Not only that -  thanks to our Clapham location, food miles are drastically reduced.  

Each Growing Underground salad mix is an exciting blend of micro-herbs inspired by flavours from around the world, grown just under the streets of Clapham. We can’t wait for you to try them – we hope you enjoy each and every flavour packed bite!
