Sustainable Urban Farming

Last week London-based GrowUp unveiled their small urban farm, which produces sustainable vegetables and fish through vertical gardening and aquaponics.

The greenhouse will produce vegetables that will get all the necessary nutrients from waste water from fish tanks situated bellow. The nutrients are meant to fertilize the plants and in turn the plants purify the water. With a footprint of only 14 square meters, the GrowUp Box can produce around 60kg of fish and 200kg of salad each year.The GrowUp Box will be hosted this summer by the Bankside Open Spaces Trust at the Marlborough Playground on Union Street in Southwark and will be open to the public from the end of May.
