Growing Underground and GrowUp Urban Farms

Venue: Llwyfan Cymru – Wales Stage

With an increasing population, climate change and concerns about food (in)security, new and innovative farming methods are required. Steve Dring started the UK’s first underground farm based in disused air raid shelters, growing herbs and salad plants. Kate Hofman runs GrowUp Urban Farms, the UK’s first commercial aquaponics urban-farming business, cultivating both fish and salad plants in one integrated system from a warehouse in London.
