This week, Wired.co.uk paid a visit to the subterranean farm, descending the winding steps deep into the bowels of southwest London. The space is enormous. It’s made up of two seemingly never-ending tunnels (actually 430 metres long), lit — at least during our visit — only by the torches of Steven Dring and Richard Ballard, the founders of Zero Carbon Food, the company behind this agricultural curiosity.

Terre – Social : Pour quelques 250 euros, il est possible de construire une serre souterraine qui vous permettra de jardiner toute l’année durant, malgré et au-delà du froid.

Cette serre s’appelle un Walipini.

Le Walipini est une alternative abordable et efficace aux serres en verre.  Tout d’abord développée il y a 20 ans pour les régions montagneuses froides d’Amérique du Sud, cette méthode permet aux agriculteurs du monde entier de maintenir un potager productif toute l’année, même lorsque le climat est froid. (src)
