Grow, Hackney

Grow, Hackney

Grow, Hackney is a bar, kitchen and space for music, art and conversation. It is also an experiment in ethical and sustainable business.

More than that, it’s an experiment in ethical and sustainable business. Yes, we have to make a profit, but we strive to be as ethical and sustainable as possible.

About Grow, Hackney

We need to:

a) get up and running, and solvent
b) at the same time, be as ethical however and whenever we can
c) and record the process, sharing the journey online

The more established and solvent we become, the higher percentage of our supplies can be locally sourced, free range, organic, and fair trade, sourced from organisations that neither avoid their taxes nor invest in ethically dubious business. We hope to put on more community events,

We pay a London Living Wage at minimum and our bar manager will be on a percentage of the profit.

About the Space

Located in Hackney Wick, this outdoor canal side area is a relaxing place to sit, eat, drink and socialise. Plus we will hold special music and arts events.

We hope to encourage partnership with the local community and encourage local groups to meet and exchange ideas (and hopefully start working together) around ethical and sustainable business and self sustainable communities, such as permaculture and energy collectives. With an emphasis on ecological and green issues, we plan to create a small ‘allotment’ or vegetable patch and herb garden for use in our restaurant.

In short we would like Grow, Hackney to be a catalyst for a joined up, effective local community.
