GrowUp Urban Farms is in the running for Best Educator and Best Producer in Urban Food Awards 2014

urban foodWe are pleased to announce that GrowUp Urban Farms is participating in the Urban Food Awards 2014 and is up for awards in two exciting categories – Best Producer and Best Educator.

The Urban Food Awards held by Urban Food Routes and London Food Link celebrates up-and-coming small food enterprises that are based in London and are committed to making a difference to the urban food scene through the ways in which they produce, supply, serve and educate about food.

Over the past year, GrowUp has used aquaponics at its demonstration farm – The GrowUp Box – to sustainably grow up to 400 salads at a time, which are then supplied to local restaurants and cafes. As an educator, GrowUp has had visits from a diverse range of audiences including local primary and secondary schoolchildren and sustainable food enthusiasts.
