The Mushroom Factory

Carla and Quentin are making mushroom growing fun with The Mushroom Factory growing kits. They've developed kits for oyster, shiitake, portabella and button mushrooms.

Story by Deni Archer

A spontaneous idea mushrooms into a business

The-Mushroom-Factory

For Carla and Quentin, mushroom farming happened “by mistake”. After Quentin fell in love with mushroom foraging on a trip to Sweden, he returned home to Johannesburg with the idea of growing the fungi. “And the next thing I knew, we had mushrooms growing all over our bathroom floor!” says Carla.

Rather suddenly, Carla found herself transformed from an interior designer to a mushroom farmer. Their product is an innovative mushroom growing kit. A lot of effort has gone into the design of these kits, making them attractive and “idiot proof” because, Carla says, growing mushrooms should be fun! So the packaging, designed by Quentin, is funky and fresh which makes the idea of growing mushrooms feel a lot more doable.

Let mushrooms be thy medicine

Their main product is the exotic oyster mushroom, quite new to the South African public, but quickly growing in popularity. They also have the more conventional white button, the much-loved portabella and and the smoky flavoured shiitake. Mushrooms aren’t only delicious, they’re also... nutritious! They’re packed with more amino acids per serving than corn, peanuts or kidney and soy beans. And surprisingly, the vitamin content is not dissimilar from that of meat. Shitake is also well known in the East for its medicinal properties.

You can find The Mushroom Factory kits at many of Joburg’s markets, as well as some nurseries and food stores - see the ‘Where to buy’ tab. Or you can order them directly from their website.

Real Love Spell To Get Your Ex Back by the powerful and great Dr Purity Home Solution

by Mirabel Harny  |   27 October 2016 04:03 PM   |   0 replies

Hi everyone!
I'm so excited share this testimony here about how i got my ex boyfriend back after a break up. I'm Mirabel 21 yr old from England, my boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Purity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Purity . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.This is his E-mail: Purityhomesolution@gmail.com or Add him up on Whats-app: +2348160153829

HOW TO GET BACK WITH YOUR EX LOVEER

by Dr Mojo Magagula  |   26 August 2016 06:43 AM   |   1 reply

Please read my testimony, it can bring solution to the problems you are
facing in life. I met this spell caster Dr Mojo online and read the
testimonies of many persons witnessing how he has help them solve problems
of any kind such as fibroid without surgery, Infertility, cure of diabetes,
breast cancer, weak penis, regulation of menstruation and pains, stroke,
HIV / AIDS, successful interview and work examination, political
achievement, recovery of lost money, quick sales in business or commerce,
choice of good marriage partner, power to bring your ex back, stopping your
man or woman having affair outside your relationship or marriage, power to
win pool, lottery, visa approval, reduction of sagging breast, gun
protecting spiritual ring, promotion at work etc ... I contacted him
through his WhatsApp instant messenger with the phone number +27797427509.I
was absolutely desperate to have my husband back. Life without my husband
was a pain for me and my children. I wanted a drastic change and I thought
that only magic can be the only solution because he was so cruel towards
me. After discussing my problem with Dr Mojo, he gave me hope that my
marriage shall be restored. He gave me confidence that he will make my
husband to come home and he did It! It was a great miracle, He never asked
for money before helping me, all he requested for was some few items i had
to purchase, and i provided these items immediately, he performed the spell
and my marriage was restored immediately. His help is invaluable! I do not
know what I could have done without Dr Mojo, he does his job well, his
powers are so real and effective, I think he is the best caster I can count
on when it comes spells, although at first I never believed in magic until
I had to try, I think there are many who are depressed, desperate and want
this spell to return their happiness, so I have to use this medium to reach
all those who are facing one problem or the other. Contact him immediately
and I can guarantee that your problems are solved. You can also contact him
via emailaddress;solutioncentre1960@gmail.com
website;www.drmojosolutioncentre.com, for quick response call him or
message him through Whatsapp instant messenger with his number+27797427509.
Good luck, i hope you find your heart desires.
