Updated on December 6, 2015


*Profit isn't always monetary... ( Health in this case- is what possibly pays,)


Growing and selling mushrooms may be one of the easiest methods of producing a valuable food crop while recycling a mostly unwanted, and usually free growing medium. Mushrooms don't need any light to grow and are fairly tolerant to mild climate changes. While mushrooms are not usually a common food that is adored by the masses, they do contain useful nutrients, minerals and vitamins that can be grown in small spaces.
