Melbourne-based startup Farmwall is on a mission to transform cities into “food producing ecosystems” with its edible farms that will live and grow inside Melbourne cafes and restaurants. 

Melbourne startup crowdfunds journey to grow produce inside restaurants

The crowdfunded venture will produce vertical farms, called Farmwalls, that are installed inside cafes and restaurants to provide a consistent supply of fresh herbs and microgreens at the fingertips of the chef.

Farmwalls bring “farm to plate in under a minute”.

The Farmwall team will make weekly visits to venues with the farms, bringing trays of germinated seeds from the company’s aquaponic farm in Alphington. The farm will act as a base for education, welcoming frequent visits from restaurateurs to test, trial and influence produce.
