A mushroom for health
Over recent decades, there has been considerable change in both the scale of production and the methods used producing mushrooms. Mushroom production has become increasingly sophisticated; the science and techniques applied to growing mushrooms have improved and resulted in greater productivity.
Mushroom growing today generally requires a high level of investment in insulated buildings and temperature control equipment, humidity and ventilation equipment, among other technologies. With sophisticated, highly controlled growing environments, pests, diseases and other disorders are controlled in the large scale mushroom growing operations, giving a much higher quality product, and less risk than was seen earlier.
While Shitake remains the most widely cultivated mushroom, a greater diversity of mushrooms have been grown over recent years. Straw mushrooms, Oyster mushrooms and many others are becoming increasingly popular, both in the gourmet food industry, and more widely. The demand for mushrooms has expanded greatly throughout much of the world over recent decades.
Mushroom growing can be a complex process, but we believe that anyone can do it if they choose the right methods. So, we created GroCycle: an innovative social enterprise based in Devon, United Kingdom with a mission to teach everyone the easy way to grow mushrooms.
What We Do
Below we have mentioned most popular activities done by us. You may feel free to ask anything and by every mean we are ready to help...
The most commonly grown mushrooms are Oyester, Button and Shitake. (the champignon) but there are lots of other edible fungi that are increasingly grown and eaten today. This course deals with various types but concentrates on Agaricus.
Growing, harvesting, marketing, storage, pest and diseases and even ways of cooking and using mushrooms are all covered.
Mushrooms are living things and as such are somewhat unpredictable and variable. The way you treat a mushroom is different from place to place, time to time and according to what you are trying to get from the mushroom. This course aims to teach mushroom growing in a way which will be relevant to any place in the world. It puts aside regional techniques and tries to teach you principles and concepts which can be applied to anywhere.
