GrowUp is an urban farming business that produces fresh fish, salads and herbs in cities using a combination of aquaponic and vertical growing technologies and was founded at the start of 2013 by Kate Hofman and Tom Webster. Aquaponics is a recirculating soil-less system where water is cycled from fish tanks through plants and back into the fish tanks. The plants absorb the waste nutrients in the water, and in turn, filter and purify the water for the fish. By combining aquaponics with vertical growing, GrowUp farms are designed for high-density and high-yield commercial food production in city centres.
