These Bomb Shelters Have Been Made into Underground Farms

This old, unused bomb shelter has been remade into a full functional and thriving underground farm. The farm is set up in London and grows microgreens without the use of real sunlight.

A bomb shelter is a scary place and a strange idea when thought of in a vacuum, but when looked at as a place for things to grow it becomes less menacing. This farm is run by Zero Carbon Foods and doesn't require sunlight to grow their brands of vegetables. The group uses LED lights to create microgreens, a brand of vegetables that are in the middle of baby and a sprout.

Being able to churn out high quality vegetables in a place other than the basic farm is proof that the farming industry is quickly changing.
