Another great Freo innovation – The Fremantle Urban Mushroom Farm

Julian and Ryan from Life Cykel turn coffee waste into gourmet mushrooms at their Fremantle Urban Mushroom Farm.

What will 300 tonnes of coffee ground waste and mushrooms do for human and planetary health? Follow their journey to find out!

Life Cykel is a new, locally owned, social enterprise using coffee ground waste to create Australia’s first Urban Mushroom Farm.

Collecting coffee ground waste from Fremantle coffee shops, Life Cykel will grow gourmet organic mushrooms to be sold to local restaurants, food outlets and local markets.

And no, they don’t taste like coffee!

The City of Fremantle has jumped on board, already committing $15000 to the project. Now Life Cykel is calling on more like-minded people who believe local food, local economies and a greener future is what we should strive for.
