We were a few months away from graduation at UC Berkeley when we first heard that you could grow gourmet mushrooms on recycled coffee grounds. Inspired by the idea of turning waste into fresh, local food, we experimented in Alex' fraternity kitchen, ultimately growing one test bucket of oyster mushrooms.

Instead we became full-time urban mushroom farmers and haven't looked back since!
