I have been a huge fan of GrowUp since their successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this year where they managed to raise over £16,000 to start their ambitious urban farm project in the centre of London. So when i saw on twitter they where selling tickets for a bbq i jumped at the chance. I tried to visit earlier this year at the beginning of their project but unfortunately i must have been to eager and caught them on their day off.
For a mere £16pp the tickets included a visit to the aquaponics farms and a bbq cooking the Tilapia and there fresh lettuce and herbs. I tried to visit earlier this year at the begging of there project but unfortunately i must have been to eager and caught them on their day off.
The meal was brilliant so simple and fresh with the gilled Tilapia and a seriously spicy relish and grilled plantains.
All in all the bbq was a cracking successes the atmosphere was brilliant with a great bunch of people chatting away about the urban farming concept. I would urge anyone in London to check the place out.
