A bomb shelter from World War II has become London’s hottest new farm. Growing Underground, opening this week, is the epitome of local food: everything is grown right under the streets of Clapham, in south London. 

“Tunnels that 70 years ago contained beds to house Londoners now contain beds to feed Londoners,” the farmers say.
