HydroGrow is a project making urban vegetable production more accessible in London. We design hydroponic systems which are small, easy to use and sustainable in order to promote a healthier lifestyle and environment. HydroGrow takes a Bottom-Up approach by helping to reduce carbon emissions from containerization and to reduce food waste by creating 100% crop yields with fast growth turn over. This is all done whilst also using 70% less virtual water. Furthermore, with an interactive interface via various other ideas we will create a system which can be used by beginners through to experts who want a more sustainable way of living. Thus, we try to become part of the change to snowball a more environmentally conscious world which is taking serious action towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions and making urban areas more green. Making agriculture in the UK more environmentally sustainable one hydroponics system at a time.
