We designed and built an energy independent and sustainable mushroom farm in Sacramento, Simply Manna Gourmet Mushrooms. We grow gourmet mushrooms on a certified organic waste material and get 200% bio efficiency out of it! Our only "waste" product is a highly nutritious cattle feed. We also work with local organizations and schools to help educate students on sustainable farming innovations and practices. We'd love it if you could add us to your list! Go check us out and feel free to contact me.
