About Mark Horler
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.
Mark is also Division Lead for Sustainability and Certification, within which he is managing the creation of the first Vertical Farming specific sustainability certification scheme, among other projects.
Vertical Farming offers a genuinely sustainable and efficient way to grow food for local markets. Showing how businesses can implement this extra revenue stream, focusing on practical advice around modular growing units and renewable energy use.
