Richard Ballard

Richard Ballard has started an agricultural revolution along with business partner Steven Dring in the form of Growing Underground. Located 100ft under the streets of London in disused WW2 Air Raid Shelter, this subterranean urban farm sustainably produces micro-greens using the latest LED technology. The duo are now delivering fresh hyper local produce, within just four hours of picking, to the London wholesale markets who supply the city's restaurants.

Sustainability feeding the city from within the city, Richard is obsessed by all things green tech and the future of cities.
