Through Upcycled Mushrooms, he provided exotic mushrooms to local restaurants, rare local-origin strains of fungi for other growers, and a range of workshops & courses on how to grow edible mushrooms. To encourage people to grow amazing mushrooms at home, Patrick developed the UK’s first ready to fruit “grow your own” Lion’s Mane mushroom kits. He has also developed Pink Oyster, Grey oyster & Wine Cap grow-kits – are available from www.upcycledmushrooms.co.uk
www.easymushroomgrowing.com is his new venture to bring all this knowledge and understanding and explain in easy to follow steps how to grow a huge array of mushrooms in a variety of different methods to suit every situation.
Patrick has also helped set up other innovative & unique farming projects, including the community led urban micro dairy, Street Goat www.streetgoat.co.uk. As a food activist, he gives talks around the world on these projects and more.
