Living and working in as naturally beautiful a state as we do, SA Mushrooms is dedicated to utilize natural resources in both as environmentally responsible & efficient manner.
Waste Water Recovery
100% of the run-off water generated during our composting process is collected and then reused, an important measure in a country and state wherein rainwater is, at times, a scarce and precious resource.
We have installed an expansive network of solar panels and inverters, as well as energy-efficient screen displays and other electronics, allowing us to greatly reduce our company’s dependence on non-renewable energy sources.
The mushroom industry is the ultimate recycler. Mushroom food is made from wheat straw, poultry litter, other organic materials, gypsum and water. When carefully combined, they provide the perfect nutrient-rich medium for production of high-quality mushrooms.
Once the mushroom crop is harvested, the mushroom substrate goes back into the environment as a highly sought-after potting mix and garden mulch. The cycle is complete.
Spent Mushroom Compost is sold to local market gardeners and packaged into 30 lts bags sold in around 30 retail stores and online across Adelaide. For more information, visit buycompost.com.au.
