Help me put the basis of a Gourmet and Medicinal Mushroom Farm near
Bucharest, Romania. At the moment it is impossible for Romanians to
buy or even find locally grown medicinal mushrooms in their natural state.
In Romania the market lacks the actual natural product that brings the full natural benefits of fungi that can boost the immune system, prevent and treat diseases as cancer, liver and lung disease, respiratory diseases, are anti-inflammatory, regulate blood pressure, help support brain health and cognition, support the nervous system, offer an increase of energy and stamina and are full of antioxidants. In the medicinal area, my interest is to cultivate mushrooms like: Cordyceps Militaris, Cordyceps Sinensis, Ganoderma Lucidum, Trametes Versicolor, Lentinus Edodes, Hericium Erinaceus, etc.
These types of mushrooms that I present here have already been studied and are used in other countries or parts of the world and can even be found on the market but only being sold as pharmaceutical or naturist products, the thing is that they are processed and combined with other components.
Not all mushrooms are edible because of their texture so some of them are turned into infusions to be consumed and for their nutritional values to be absorbed into the body better, but some mushrooms can be turned into amazingly tasty meals and so, we enter the gourmet part.
On the this side of things, there are a lot of mushrooms that have also medicinal benefits and can be consumed as nutritional delicious meals. And here I am talking about mushrooms like: Auricularia Auricula-Judae, Hericium Coraloides, Ramaria Botrytis, Fistulina Hepatica, Laetiporus Sulphureus, Stropharia Rugosoannulata, etc.
My story with mushrooms starts way back, for more than 10 years now I started studying and looking for them on the field, only to find out some don't even exist around here, not on the field, not on the market. More than that, because of the lack of product and information, mushrooms tend to cause people this fear of them being this toxic and poisonous aliment which they may be, but also they can be this amazing nourishing and medicinal treat.
So out of passion and curiosity I took a mushroom
cultivation course to find out more and learn what mushrooms actually are so now I can proudly say I am an eligible mushroom cultivator with an
internationally recognized diploma. And more than that, I wanna do something more about it.
It would be amazing for me to accomplish my dream and succeed in having a mushroom farm and be able to share this natural gift locally to people as healthy food and an alternative natural medicine.
I've been thinking for so long at this project and managed to get the location figured out only that this kind of investment means a lot of things that require a lot of money, like a sterile and controlled environment, mushroom cultures and most of all, time and focus.
What I need from this fundraising is the capital to invest in organizing the space and buying the technology needed to establish a growroom and a little laboratory to produce the spawn needed for the mushroom cultures and be able to dedicate myself to it as a fulltime job. Of course, the cultures that will sprout will be bought from bio certified mushroom research institutes that are verified and approved.
I hope you all will understand the importance and benefits that these kinds of mushrooms can bring and you will support my cause. Thank you for your time and donation and wish me goodluck in accomplishing my dream!
