Speaker: Richard Ballard - Co-Founder and Farmer in Chief, Zero Carbon Farms.
Richard Ballard started an agricultural revolution Growing Underground. Located 30 meters under the streets of London in a disused WW2 Air Raid Shelter, this subterranean urban farm sustainably produces micro-greens and baby leaf using the latest LED technology delivering fresh hyper-local produce to retailers and the London wholesale markets.
Sustainably feeding the city from within the city, Richard is obsessed with all things green tech and the future of cities. In his talk, he will explain how the process works and how yields can increase multiple times by optimising the growing environment.
