Peninsula farms is dedicated to lowering the waste that is produced from growing
that is why we are using Grodan Rockwool as this can be recycled to lower the carbon footprint. Did you know that One cubic metre of basalt produces 50 cubic metres of stone wool - sufficient to grow 350,000 kg of tomatoes, 1 million cucumbers or 175,000 peppers in a sustainable manner. After use, the stone wool created from the one cubic metre of basalt can be used as raw material to produce 8 cubic metres of brick. Recycling stone wool after use means that less new basalt is required. At the same time this saves the use of clay or sand which would otherwise be used as raw material for brick manufacturing.
Peninsula farms are also looking into developing an aeroponic grow system for growing Vine crops such as Peppers, Tomatoes and Cucumbers, this will reduce water usage by over 80%
