We are a new company. 

I am on a mission to increase the species of mushrooms in NZ for food forest and commercial uses, from species that make bio-fuel to insecticides. I can only do this with your support. I work a full time job that I also enjoy so every bit of money I get from my business goes to researching and importing new species. All the species I have and will be importing have both MAF and EPA approval, some of the insect killing and biofuel making fungi will need to go through other approvals as well. I have over 10 new species planned for next year and more if finances allow. Help yourself and the planet, lets change the way we see and use fungi.
