You can get gypsum wherever homebrew supplies are sold.

Gypsum can be found in the garden dept of any store like home depot or lowes, etc..

Coir fibre would be a more natural alternative to vermiculite. Works great too.

I've read that a fine powder is the best way to use gypsum. It's used as a PH level regulator. So i've read.

Cheers,

I dont see why you couldnt use finely crumbled sheet rock, someone turned
me on to the fact that gyp is plaster of paris and theyre basicly the same.
The gypsum is to loosen up your grains so they dont clump, its not a vermiculite
substitute.
