Oyster Farming in Uganda...
    #2671761 - 05/13/04 02:16 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I was listening to the radio this afternoon, and heard this story about a woman who took a mushroom class here in Oregon, and took what she learned about mushroom farming back to Uganda to help the people support themselves financially. I thought it was an interesting story, so I thought I'd post a link. Feel free to move it to whatever forum it should go in... :smile:

We need more of those types of people in the world.... I think people following the Eastern European model of oyster farming could really really help out impoverished areas of American metropolitan ghettos.

But don't they also used abandoned warehouses? I live in a metropolitan of 600,000 and there just may be 1000 abandoned warehouses that one could grow mushrooms in.

sounds good wish i had warehouses to use :frown:

so where does the substrate come from/ go to?

thgough I guees you could make a double killing by shipping it to the burbs as rich mans 'garden fertiiser' or back to the farmer as stockfeed (more digestible)

I don't want to portray myself as an expert, but I went to a speech put on by a local shiitake farmer. He has friends in the eastern block who use an old abandoned asbestos factory/warehouse as their farm complex. They do oyster mushrooms on straw logs. Wheat is a common crop world wide, as far as what they do with the spent substrate I do not know. The man speaker (it was a family run farm), told us that they were fed a very fancy traditional desert when they visited. He said that is a pretty good sign they are doing well.
