Farmer ‘Buttons’ has recently started up her own micro-mushroom farm in her Brunswick East backyard. Producing up to 20 plus kg of oyster mushrooms a week, ‘The Mushroomery’ is delivering vibrant and fresh produce to local cafes and ‘Joes Market Garden’ Saturday farm gate.
‘Buttons’ is a budding young Melbourne farmer who, after completing her Permaculture Design Course at CERES in 2016, has embarked on a life-changing journey of eating seasonally and growing just about everything possible (now including mushrooms) to meet her own needs.
Buttons took us through the complicated and intricate process of growing 6 variations of delicious mushrooms in a backyard environment. Grown on organic rye and straw and housed in a grow chamber made from salvaged building materials, this mushy farm is a great example of profitable small scale urban agriculture.
