Become a Vertical Farmer

Our History

Since 2017, Mike Newhook has been the visionary behind 7 aquaponic/hydroponic farms.

What started with 2 large commercial aquaponic farms launched in the Philippines in 2018, which was followed by a prototype hydroponics farm that launched in rural Alberta in 2020, has now expanded into Edmonton, Leduc, and St. Paul through an owner-operated licensing model. Vertical Roots Canada is passionate about making local, year-round, food production possible for ANYONE! Our small-medium commercial-scale hydroponic farms create opportunities for local residents to be part of the food supply solution.

Our Mission

Vertical Roots has created a system that can change lives and bring fresh, healthy, chemical-free food to local communities without the truck time, cooler time or shelf life we currently experience from our imported greens. By growing locally we can ensure nutrient dense greens, that are 100% clean! We now offer a Turn-Key Hydroponics Farm with everything you need to run your own community-based hydroponics farm through our licensing model. Founders, Mike and Becky are excited to expand across Canada to bring fresh food & sustainable growth to local communities.
