Joachim Sophie starts Growfunding

Organic mushrooms from converted garage

Plenty of garages and basements, Joachim Sophie, in his own words 'upcoming bio-agriculturist', thought. By starting a crowdfunding he wants to grow mushrooms and fungi in a 100 m2 garage in Deurne in Belgium. The main advantage is that no soil is required. The raw material used for growing is coming from circular rest streams such as coffee grounds.

In exchange for a financial contribution investors will receive a portion of the harvest. Joachim wants a short chain without large scale transport, so the customer can see where the products are coming from.
