As food activist & farmer, Patrick has over 15 years of experience in growing food and developing food systems. Patrick’s passion for growing food started at university, where he grew his own vegetables and began to learn the art of growing mushrooms. This hobby blossomed into a career when he started his own ecological & ethical business – Upcycled Mushrooms. Patrick now consults with farms to create sustainable growing solutions, using systems which limit the energy required for fungi cultivation whilst also recycling natural waste materials from the local area into food to feed fungi. 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.
