Planet Pod goes Underground with Growing Underground's Richard Ballard and Faye Tomson from District Eating

Ep. 39

Something is stirring in the tunnels of South London and it isn't the Northern Line!

Join Amanda and guest co-host Alex Gilbert as they chat deep below London with Richard Ballard, co-founder of Growing Underground and Faye Tomson, MD of Central Eating.  Hear how how disused WWII air raid shelter tunnels are being put to good use to grow salad crops organically, efficiently and unbelievably fast.  Find out more about how unused heat generated from district heating networks can be used to grow food.  These really are examples of Smart Food Production in action!
