Careers at GrowUp Farms

GrowUp Urban Farms is an award-winning urban farming start-up. We use aquaponics and vertical farming to build sustainable farms in cities reducing the environmental impact of feeding people in cities whilst creating jobs and training opportunities.


About us

We are the UK's first commercial aquaponic urban farm - based in a warehouse in East London. 

We grow salads, herbs and fish using vertical farming and technique called Aquaponics. We take the waste from the fish, use it as fertilizer for the plants, the plants clean the water for the fish, and the whole system recirculates. It's a really sustainable way of growing food. And by building farms near cities, we can create jobs to train and employ young people whilst reducing the environmental impact of feeding people in cities. 


Our values

GrowUp is a values driven company – these values are at the core of what we do and steer the decisions we make as a business. We thought we’d share them so you can understand a bit more about what we do:

  • We care about People, Profit and the Planet;
  • We believe we can Do Good and Make Money;
  • We search for the best environmental solution available at the time – and then revisit those decisions regularly to see if a better option is available;
  • We think learning about and eating good food is something everyone should get the chance to do;
  • We should be producing food in cities at a commercial-scale in an ecologically sustainable way;
  • We can improve the level of food knowledge, education and enthusiasm in cities;
  • We should reduce the environmental impact of food production for cities;
  • Our systems and processes can lead innovation in urban food production.

Why are we exciting?

Urban Farming is amazing industry that is really starting to take off aroun the world, as cities and their people realise that we need to fundamentally change the way we feed ourselves. We're passionate about the positive impact that aquaponic urban farming can have, both socially and environmentally. We want cities all over the world to be able to grow more of their food at a commercial scale - and we're going to be the ones who make that happen.

We think that's pretty exciting!
