YMCA Urban Mushrooms

Newcastle upon Tyne

A social enterprise growing environmentally and socially friendly speciality Oyster mushrooms on upcycled coffee grounds.

YMCA Newcastle is an independent charity that supports young people, and Urban Mushrooms is their project growing mushrooms on used coffee grounds, helping reduce the 500,000 tonnes of coffee that are sent to landfill each year in the UK. They employee disadvantaged young people that would not otherwise have access to employment, providing them with training, education and employment as urban farmers. All their profits go back into the charity helping continue their vital work with young people in Newcastle upon Tyne.

After years of experimenting, they produce mushrooms of exceptional quality at their city centre Urban Farm, which are featured in award winning restaurants. They have also created a GrowBox which allows you to grown your own speciality Oyster mushrooms at home.
