Unsung Heroes of conservation: reusing, recycling and reducing through mushroom growing in Zimbabwe.

02/05/2012

Here a lady gathering sawdust at a sawmill in glenview. Sawdust is used for mushroom growing not only in Zimbabwe but the world over.

Mushroom growers play an important role in Zimbabwe by playing their role in the greening of Zimbabwe in their own small way.
I will highlight some of the ways in future posts, but as in the photo mushroom heavily rely on agricultural waste and other waste material like sawdust. Growers play a role not only of disposing off that waste but turning waste into food.

After growing the spent substrate/compost does not become waste but is used as manure for crops and vegetables.
