accessible urban farming


Growblock is a hydroponic vegetable/herb growing system, where individuals living or working in a community can rent out their own block, much like renting out a traditional garden patch. Supported by a social platform, Glowblock allows users to share, trade, and create a community. We combine the technology and efficiency of vertical farming, with the human desire to grow your own food and be part of a community. Growblock makes hydroponics financially accessible and allows companies to provide a unique benefit to their employees.


Growblock uses advanced vertical farming technology to grow many different kinds of plants. Inside their individual area, each user can have a growing area with up to 24 plants. Growblock is completely autonomous, only requiring user intervention when it’s time to plant your seeds. The addition of an interactive mobile app keeps users engaged and creates communities centered around food and sustainability.
