Bomb Shelters Under London Becomes Hi-Tech Salad Farm

Don't look so surprised, we have totally automated, hi-tech growing operations here in the U.S. too... they're just not used for vegetables. wink

Thirty-three meters under the streets of central London is an old World War II bomb shelter that’s been transformed into a hi-tech underground farm. The long tunnels beneath Clapham are being filled with stacked layers of hydroponic beds - forming "vertical farms" - for growing salads and herbs that can be delivered to tables in the city within four hours of harvesting.
