“Mushrooms amaze me! The more I study them,
the more I realize how much more there is to learn.”
Mushrooms are the premier recyclers on the planet. Fungi are essential in recycling organic waste and in the efficient return of nutrients to the ecosystem. Through our workshops and mushroom growing kits,
Forest Organics, will show you how to convert organic materials into mushrooms. These organic materials, called the substrate, include recyclable items like straw, wood, paper, coffee grounds, peanut shells, banana peels, seed hulls, cardboard, and corncobs.
When you consider the power of the mushroom mycelium (root system) to transform waste products into highly nutritious and edible delicacies, it is understandable that people are awestruck by all the possibilities of recycling with mushrooms.
Forest Organics shows you how to use these recyclable materials in a way that strengthens human health and ecological stability. Furthermore, as recycling centers flourish, their by-products, which include streams of organic waste, could be diverted into mushroom production. Even natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanoes, floods, fire and earthquakes, result in deadwood that can become another source of inexpensive substrate materials.
