The Farmbus

We transformed a London double decker bus into an exhibition of growing systems at the community Mercato Metropolitano.

The top deck was turned into a climate controlled strawberry farm holding over 400 plants in an aeroponic system. The bottom deck housed a variety of edible and decorative plants for sale, and workshop space.

We're Supplementary LED lighting creates a dynamic feature behind the bar and ensures as much produce can be grown as possible.
