We're still collecting donations

On the 25th May 2024 we'd raised £35 with 5 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.


Our journey began in 2021, when a group of passionate individuals came together with a shared vision: to revolutionize microgreens production. From our humble beginnings in a tiny spare room, where we brainstormed ideas and tinkered with prototypes, to our current state-of-the-art facility, every step has been fueled by dedication and a commitment to sustainability. Along the way, we've faced challenges, celebrated successes, and grown as a team. Now, we're ready to embark on the next chapter of our journey, and we need your support to make it happen!

In 2022, we took a significant leap forward by relocating to a super small warehouse in Bristol. It was a tight squeeze, but it allowed us to expand our operations and accommodate our growing team. Then, in 2023, we made another exciting move to the Bristol Fruit Market – our current location and the heart of our operations. These relocations marked important milestones in our growth and evolution, propelling us closer to our vision of transforming the way microgreens are grown.

🌍 Why Microgreens? 🌍

Microgreens are nature's nutrient-packed gems, offering plenty of health benefits in each tiny leaf. These miniature versions of mature plants are harvested just after the cotyledon leaves have developed, making them a concentrated source of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. From vitamin C to potassium, microgreens boast an impressive nutritional profile, making them a must-have addition to any diet.

But it's not just about what's inside – microgreens are also bursting with flavour and texture, adding a vibrant touch to culinary creations. Their tender leaves and intense flavours make them the perfect garnish for soups, salads, and sandwiches, while their delicate crunch adds a delightful contrast to smoothies and wraps.

However, traditional farming methods often struggle to keep up with the demand for fresh, nutritious microgreens. Limited space, unpredictable weather, and soil quality issues can all pose challenges for growers, leading to inconsistent yields and compromised quality.

That's where Simply Grow comes in. By harnessing the power of 3D printing technology and hydroponic farming methods, we've developed a solution that maximizes space efficiency, conserves water, and produces high-quality microgreens year-round. Our innovative systems eliminate the need for soil, allowing growers to cultivate microgreens in any environment – whether it's a cramped urban apartment or a sprawling rural farm.

With Simply Grow, anyone can enjoy the benefits of fresh, sustainable microgreens, no matter where they live or how much space they have. So why settle for mediocre greens when you can have nutrient-packed microgreens bursting with flavour and goodness? Join us in revolutionizing microgreens production and take your meals to the next level!


🚀 Our Solution: 🚀

Our revolutionary system at Simply Grow is the culmination of cutting-edge technology and innovative farming practices. By harnessing the power of state-of-the-art 3D printing technology and the efficiency of hydroponic farming methods, we've created a game-changing solution that addresses the challenges of traditional agriculture while maximizing productivity and sustainability.

Firstly, let's talk about space efficiency. Traditional farming methods often require vast expanses of land, limiting where and how crops can be grown. Our system, however, is designed to maximize space efficiency by utilizing vertical farming techniques. By stacking multiple layers of growing trays vertically, we can grow a significantly larger quantity of microgreens in a fraction of the space required by traditional farming methods. This not only allows us to make the most of limited urban spaces but also reduces the environmental impact associated with land clearing and deforestation.

Conserving water is another crucial aspect of our system. Traditional farming methods rely heavily on water irrigation, which can be inefficient and wasteful. In contrast, our hydroponic system uses a closed-loop water recirculation system, where water is continuously circulated through the growing trays, minimizing water usage and preventing nutrient runoff. This not only reduces water consumption but also helps to alleviate pressure on local water sources and ecosystems.

Furthermore, our system is designed to produce high-quality microgreens year-round, regardless of seasonal variations or weather conditions. By controlling environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, and light exposure, we can create the optimal growing conditions for microgreens, ensuring consistent quality and yield throughout the year. This means that consumers can enjoy fresh, nutrient-packed microgreens whenever they want, without being limited by seasonal availability or geographic location.

And perhaps the best part of all is that our system is sustainable, eco-friendly, and adaptable to any environment. By eliminating the need for soil and pesticides, reducing water consumption, and minimizing carbon emissions associated with transportation, we're able to produce microgreens in a way that's not only good for the planet but also good for people. 

In summary, our system at Simply Grow represents a paradigm shift in the way we think about agriculture. By combining state-of-the-art technology with sustainable farming practices, we're able to maximize productivity, conserve resources, and produce high-quality microgreens year-round, all while reducing our environmental footprint. So why settle for conventional farming methods when you can join us in shaping the future of agriculture?
