GroCycle is a UK company offering courses and kits so you can grow your own mushrooms. They have used their system to grow and sell mushrooms to local restaurants and show you how you can set up your own mushroom business.
There are a lot of positives about this opportunity:
You only need a small space for growing - basements, garages, shipping containers etc.
Provides fresh healthy food for you and your customers.
Promotes local, community-based businesses.
Where can you sell your mushrooms?
Grocycle lists the following as places where you could find new customers and partnerships to get visibility for your home-based bsiness:
Local farmers markets
Local vegetable box schemes
Local wholefood stores
Street food stall
Running workshops with local groups
I repeated local intentionally because I think initiatives like GroCycle are the way forward. Instead of relying on supermarkets and exotic foods, we need to promote community-based, environmentally-friendly products.
If you have already decided you love the idea why not take their course? It teaches you everything you need to set up your own low-tech mushroom growing business in a small space. It includes 50 video lessons, downloadable guides and checklists and access to a private Facebook group.
