Because it's teamwork that makes the dream work, right?

In the beginning there were two. Now we have 32 dedicated urban farmers.

At the core are our Farm Operatives. They are the ones that make sure everything runs smoothly right the way through the whole lifespan of our crops – be it sowing, growing, harvesting or packing – these guys are there every step of the way and wave each pea shoot goodbye as our Despatch Team takes them to wholesalers, restaurants, grocery stores and cafes all over London.

And then there are the Team Leaders, Supervisors, our growing team and our Technical & Sustainability Manager who keep an eye on the quality of our produce and make sure everything is done properly (hair nets, beard snoods, wellies, etc).

Let’s not forget our incredible back office support team. These are the people who mess around with spreadsheets and stuff, and we all know that nothing ever gets done without at least four people moving numbers around on a spreadsheet. Or sending emails at 10pm. Yep, we’re pretty lucky to have these guys.

Our All-Star Team

Some of them found us, some of them are us and some we were just gosh darn lucky to find. What we all have in common is a shared value for fixing the planet and making sure the world eats their greens.

So, drum roll because here they are…
