Careers at Growing Underground

Growing Underground is a subterranean farm 100ft under London in disused WW2 air raid bomb shelter tunnels.

We are a commercial venture that aims to benefit Londoners, businesses, society and the environment as a whole. Utilising redundant spaces, we will be producing leafy greens, herbs, micro-greens and mushrooms, grown using sophisticated LED lights and a hydroponics system powered by renewable energy, all produce will be for sale within the M25. 

The immediate benefit for Londoners is reduced food waste through increased shelf-life, bringing employment to the local area and helping to achieve a reduction in the carbon footprint of the capital. The wider benefits are that our system uses 70% less water versus traditional open-field farming methods, year round production negates seasonality, the necessity to import produce while drastically reducing food miles for retailers and consumers. Additionally all of our crops are free from pesticides.
