The world’s most isolated garden

During winter, the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station is cut off from the whole world. Yet the 50 or so people who overwinter here, still require fresh fruit and veg.

Lane and his team manage a system of hydroponics that allow crops to be grown, whatever the temperature outside.
