Growing Gourmet Mushrooms at Home from Coffee Grounds

This is an interesting article from Adam Sayner of Fungi Futures on how to very simply grow Oyster Mushrooms on used coffee grounds which would otherwise be a waste product from large cafés. Its a great way to experiment with small scale food growing and to watch the mushroom life cycle in action.

I attended a course run by Fungi Futures last year and found it a valuable experience that inspired me to experiment with using cardboard as a substrate for outdoor mushroom cultivation. I have had great success with these experiments and hope to put together a post on the mushroom patch I created at Middle Ruckham Farm that fruited a few days ago. They were tasty mushrooms!
