GroCycle

GroCycle

GroCycle is an innovative social enterprise based in Devon, United Kingdom. We have been growing mushrooms since 2009. During that time we’ve focussed on finding the easiest low-tech ways to cultivate mushrooms. Mushroom growing is often seen as a complex process, but in our experience anyone can learn to do it pretty easily if they choose the right methods. We offer mushroom growing kits for anyone who wants mushrooms grown at home in the very simplest way. There are great free articles on our site teaching subjects like how to grow Oyster mushrooms and how to set up a Low Tech mushroom farm.
