Mark became interested in Vertical Farming around 4 years ago, especially in its potential for revitalising run down areas in a genuinely sustainable way. He spent the next two years travelling around the UK, talking to experts and examining a variety of projects. In the end this resulted in a book and then a campaign, both known as Regrowth. From there, he made contact with the Association for Vertical Farming (AVF) and was subsequently invited to take on the role of UK Regional Manager. He is currently building networks of businesses, institutions and individuals in the VF movement across the UK.
