FROM USED COFFEE GROUNDS COMES MUSHROOMS

Project: Polar Permaculture Garden

Posted by Benjamin Vidmar almost 6 years ago

Started growing oyster mushrooms on 26.01.2014 from used coffee grounds and shredded cardboard.

So we are just beginning to use used coffee grounds and shredded cardboard as a medium to grow oyster mushrooms and have just started it two days ago, so hopefully we will have more to report in a few weeks. Am really excited about this project and just the whole process of turning what most people view as waste into something very valuable.

Vladixa Blackford : Where do you get the spores for your mushrooms? Do the coffee grounds have to age for a while first prior to adding the spores for the mushrooms?

Benjamin Vidmar : Hey Vladixa :) I got the spores from http://www.fieldforest.net/ and it's best if you use the coffee grinds within a day of collecting them. If you cannot get enough, then freeze them because if they age, then the mushrooms will have to compete with other molds in order to grow. I also use cardboard, and I process it by soaking it in boiling water until it is soft enough to tear apart. I make about a 50/50 mixture of coffee grinds and cardboard for the shitaki mushrooms and about 70/30 coffee grinds and cardboard for the oyster :) Hope it helps and thanks for your time...

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
