GrowUp, Kate Hofman & Tom Webster
In this interactive talk, GrowUp founders Tom and Kate will give an overview of GrowUp, explain how aquaponics works, why we should be farming in our cities and why aquaponics could be the farming solution of the future. There will also be an open Q&A at the end.
All attendees will have their names entered into a prize draw to win a free tour of the GrowUp Box this summer.
GrowUp is a start-up who aim to demonstrate a sustainable model for commercial food production in cities. Using aquaponic technology, unused rooftop and urban spaces can be converted to grow fresh fish and vegetables at a commercial scale. They recently launched their first project in the UK, the GrowUp Box, raising over £16,000 through crowdfunding on Kickstarter.
