Aquaponic urban farm
GrowUp Urban Farms uses aquaponics to produce high-quality salads, herbs, microgreens and fish on sustainable farms close to consumers.
GrowUp use a combination of aquaponic and vertical growing technologies to maximise the sustainable yield from the constraints of urban space.
Aquaponics combines aquaculture (fish farming) and hydroponics (growing plants in water without soil) in a recirculating system.
Using the waste from the fish as the nutrients for the plants means salads and herbs can be grown without chemical fertilizers and pesticides and the fish can be farmed in consistently high-quality water.
