Storefront Mushroom Farm

Extra

US-based design collective CityLab7 have transformed Olson Kundig Architects’ Seattle gallery, Storefront, into a temporary mushroom farm. 

Taking advantage of the city’s coffee culture, the installation incudes 215 fungi growing bags that transform spent coffee grounds collected from local cafes into gourmet oyster mushrooms.

The Storefront Mushroom Farm includes a programme of events to educate the local communities about future sustainable models of urban agriculture. It culminates in a harvest, where the mushrooms will be donated to local families in need of food.

The Storefront Mushroom Farm runs until March 9 2012. Read more about how fungi have the potential to radically improve both the health of the planet and its population in Fungi in the Biological Age.
