What Our Course Members Say:

"We needed a good body of knowledge and expertise, and we really got that from GroCycle. The support and advice we received was invaluable - it was the base of everything that LifeCykel has been built on"
Julian Mitchel, LifeCykel
"My big fear about courses are that I will get a few small gems and waste a lot of time when I can usually just search the net. Let me say I have been absolutely delighted with the content, delivery & community you have brought together. Your website, video content & simple presentation has been excellent"

GroCycle: Pioneers Of Low Tech Mushroom Farming

Here at GroCycle mushroom farm we’ve been pioneering simpler low tech ways to grow mushrooms since 2011.

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’ve trained thousands of people around the world in mushroom cultivation, and we love seeing what people take away and do with this knowledge.

  • Some people take great pleasure in growing fresh mushrooms at home for their friends and family
  • Others set up small scale mushroom farms as a sideline or hobby business
  • And some even take it forward as a full time business

We have also partnered with one of the world’s most experienced mushroom growers to offer a mushroom consultancy service for those who are thinking of setting up a larger commercial scale mushroom farm.
