What you need to know:
Founders Nikhil Arora and Alejandro Velez were a few months away from graduation at UC Berkeley when they first heard that you could grow gourmet mushrooms on recycled coffee grounds. Inspired by the idea of turning waste into fresh, local food, they experimented in Alex' fraternity kitchen, ultimately growing one test bucket of oyster mushrooms. With that one bucket and incredible support from the community, they decided to forgo their investment banking and consulting offers. Instead they became full-time urban mushroom farmers and haven't looked back since!
