Our Brewery-Based Vertical Farm
RIPE FOR THE PICKING
Strawberry Hells Forever is back, and this year - we’re looking about how we can grow a more sustainable brewery, so to celebrate the launch of our first Seasonal Hells of 2019, we’ve partnered with GrowUp Community Farms, a London social enterprise, who are championing sustainable urban farming to grow the freshest, natural ingredients right in our city.
GrowUp Community Farms is raising awareness of new urban farming technologies with workshops and education projects at their Bermondsey hub. Vertical farming has been created to transform spaces into socially and environmentally productive places. The method allows for year-round organic crop production with less exposure to chemicals, using 90% less water than traditional farming to grow fresh, sustainable produce within our city.
A donation of 20p from every can of Strawberry Hells Forever, will go to supporting GrowUp Community Farms and their mission to spread the word about the huge benefits urban farming has to offer.
We’ve teamed up with their sister company Rootlabs, who build London’s urban farms, to launch the UK’s first brewery-based urban vertical farm to our Enfield brew house. Rootlab’s will be installing a vertical farm to help us grow our very own crop of urban strawberries for future brewing.
Now, anyone for a beer?
Head to Sainsbury’s, Byron Hamburgers or our Camden Brewery bar to get your hands on #StrawberryHellsForever this summer (quick, before it goes!)
