Vertical Farm Update

Vertical Farm Update



Today on the farm

The first lettuce plants have been planted in the Aquaponic system. They have been grown in our propagator from seed and will now progress in our Aquaponic bed until they are ready to harvest in mid-February.

The seeds are sown into a growing sponge that can be planted in our soil free systems.  the sponges are made from a mixture of peat, bark and plant extracts
