The Vertikit Gang

Partners and External Resources

Controlled Environment Agriculture can be a complicated world. At Vertikit we are lucky to be part of a growing ecosystem of partners and thought leaders in the vertical farming space. This page is a non-exhaustive list of resources and friends who’ve been instrumental in the journey thus far.

Tyfu Cymru delivers industry specific support and training to commercial horticulture businesses in Wales through 100% funded support, tailored to business needs. This training helps to develop the capacity and capability of the Welsh horticulture industry.

Tyfu Cymru work with a range of industry experts to provide fully funded training and support for horticulture business. Our specialists provide a one-to-one advisory service, delivered both in person and online, and manage our successful grower networks. In addition, Tyfu Cymru delivers a wide variety of workshops and events focused on industry needs, such as our IPDM training programme.

The Tyfu Cymru project is led by Lantra, with funding from the Welsh Government’s Rural Development Programme. The project seeks to support the Welsh Government to realise its ambitious objectives for growth and rural regeneration through the innovative and sustainable development of the horticulture industry in Wales.


Horticulture Wales is a project funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government, managed and delivered by Glyndwr University.

Their three main aims are to:

  1. Shorten supply chains by promoting local Welsh produce.
  2. Reduce waste, with an emphasis on single-use plastics and waste valorisation (the process of reusing, recycling or composting waste materials and converting them into more useful products).
  3. Promote collaborative working through the creation of ‘clusters’ of local food producers, growers and horticulturalists across Wales.
