Meet the Team

Pat – CEO & Founder

 

Patrick has over 15 years of experience in growing food and developing food systems.  Patrick’s passion for growing food started at university. It was here 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. These growing systems limit the energy required for fungi cultivation, whilst also recycling natural waste materials into food to feed fungi.

Through Upcycled Mushrooms, he provided exotic mushrooms to local restaurants, as well as rare local-origin strains of fungi for other growers.  He also has 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 Lion’s Mane mushroom kits. He has also developed Pink oyster mushroom grow kit, Grey oyster mushroom grow kit & Wine Cap start spawn mushroom grow kit.

Easymushroomgrowing is his new venture to bring all this knowledge and understanding on how to grow a huge array of mushrooms. He teaches mushroom growing in a variety of different methods to suit every situation. He is developing a series of videos which explains the processes in easy to follow steps. From these videos you will learn everything you need to grow your own mushroom business from scratch.

Patrick has also helped set up other innovative & unique farming projects. This includes the community led urban micro dairy Street Goat.  As a food activist, he gives talks around the world on these projects and more.

Jack – Production Manager

 

Hey! My name is Jack and I run the production side of things here at Upcycled Mushrooms. If you buy something from us, I’ll probably have a hand in making it!
🔬I’ve got a science background, but have always had a deep passion for the natural world and our place in it. So, when Patrick asked me to turn my hand at growing fungi, I was so happy. Working in such an environmentally and ethically focused business is a dream come true!✨
If you come to the mushroom lab you’ll mostly find me boogying around to funk and soul. 🎶

 

My Interests:
🌳👣 Being out in nature! Most weekends I’m out hiking or swimming outdoors.
🤤 Food (who doesn’t?!) Favourite cuisines include Mexican and Thai.
📖🤓Reading. I’m a big fan of fantasy, but on my current reading shelf is: Feral by George Monbiot and The Book of Trespass by Nick Hayes
🧘🤸Yoga and Meditation
😍🤯 I’m forever amazed with the scope & scale of our world… Nature is ridiculous!

Tiahna – Marketing & Production Assistant

 

Tiahna is the newest member of the fungi family here at Upcycled Mushrooms. Like all of us around here, Tiahna is a bit of a mushroom fiend and always finds comfort in nature. Tiahna studied animation at university and is a serial hobbyist when it comes to anything creative. This has led her to winning competitions including photography, cake decorating and other crafting events. 

Tiahna is also a published illustrator – currently working on children’s books. Music is also a big part of her life being a singer/songwriter.

🐺Kayla the dog 🐺 – Official Mascot & all round power pups!

 

Herro! My name is Kayla and I spend my time sunbathing in front of the laboratory while my owner is busy filling mushroom bags.

I loooooove treats and petting and also keep a good eye on all things outside, particulary for those pesky squirrels and rodents who want to steal our wheat bran stash.

I see myself as a big she-wolf and if you are lucky I’ll howl so loud that you’ll think I’m actually a real wolf!! 🐺

🍷Happy national wine day - mushroom wine anyone?🍷

🍄Mushroom wine isn’t something you come across very often, however it most certainly exists! Most notably found in South Korea 'Myungjak Sang hwang' is a medicinal mushroom wine made from Sang hwang or Black hoof mushrooms (Phellinus linteus). Sang hwang was the most exalted medicine in ancient times and has been used for perpetual youth and longevity.✨

🌳Phellinus linteus is indigenous to several countries in East Asia, including Japan, Korea, and China. P. linteus is a polypore mushroom that typically grows on mulberry trees. 💊The fungus has a long history of medicinal uses and has been attributed to the successful treatment of ailments as varied as gastrointestinal distress to certain types of cancers. 

🧴It’s often added to skin care and cosmetic formulations in order to alleviate dermatological irritation and/or inflammation. Some limited research also points to P. linteus as effective in the treatment of hyperpigmentation and other melanistic disorders.

🧠 It’s mental health awareness week - let’s talk shrooms. 🧠

It would be wrong to not discuss the potential role psychedelics could play in improving our mental health given the reported benefits of their use.

Psilocybin has been studied to help with:
🍄Depression
🍄Anxiety
🍄Addiction and dependence on other substances 
🍄PTSD
🍄Chronic pain
🍄OCD

Psilocybin is reported to result in significant changes in brain dynamics. Studies have shown that psilocybin may also be able to reset the functional connectivity of our brain circuits.🧠 For this reason, psilocybin can be used to effectively “rewire” our brains which can help those who experience recurring thought patterns. 

In clinical studies, some of the acute and long-term subjective effects of psilocybin include:

🌍Enhanced feelings of connectedness
🧘‍♀️Increased sense of wellbeing
🌱Pro-environmental behaviour
🧠Sustained/persisting improvement in attitudes and behaviour. One study reports substantial decreases in depressive and anxious symptoms persisting up to 6 months after a single active treatment.

✨With results like these, it’s hard to believe that psychedelic substances like psilocybin aren’t being more heavily studied to become a treatment option for those who would benefit from it. Positive movements towards its medical uses are being done slowly and I hope one day we will have the option to utilise the amazing benefits of magic mushrooms. 🍄

🍴Have you tried Wine cap mushrooms before? 🍴

🍄 Wine caps are a great addition to add to your growing space for many reasons e.g soil health. But simply growing these mushrooms as a food source isn't talked about enough!

😋They can be cooked and prepared like any other mushroom and are often described as 'rich' and 'earthy'. The perfect flavour accompaniment to meats, risotto, Italian dishes or even just as a tasty side dish on their own.

What's your favourite way to cook Wine cap?🤔

🍷Happy national wine day - mushroom wine anyone?🍷

🍄Mushroom wine isn’t something you come across very often, however it most certainly exists! Most notably found in South Korea 'Myungjak Sang hwang' is a medicinal mushroom wine made from Sang hwang or Black hoof mushrooms (Phellinus linteus). Sang hwang was the most exalted medicine in ancient times and has been used for perpetual youth and longevity.✨

🌳Phellinus linteus is indigenous to several countries in East Asia, including Japan, Korea, and China. P. linteus is a polypore mushroom that typically grows on mulberry trees. 💊The fungus has a long history of medicinal uses and has been attributed to the successful treatment of ailments as varied as gastrointestinal distress to certain types of cancers. 

🧴It’s often added to skin care and cosmetic formulations in order to alleviate dermatological irritation and/or inflammation. Some limited research also points to P. linteus as effective in the treatment of hyperpigmentation and other melanistic disorders.

I want to bring mushroom growing to everyone

I passionately believe that anyone can learn to grow mushrooms. It is not something you need any specialist equipment or formal education to learn. I teach more than just cultivation and like to also explain the inner workings of the fungal kingdom in nature. My aim is to inspire everyone to want to nurture and care for these amazing organisms.
