BACK TO THE ROOTS

Nikhil Arora

 

Back to the Roots Story: We were a few months away from graduation at UC Berkeley when we first heard that you could grow gourmet mushrooms on recycled coffee grounds.

Inspired by the idea of turning waste into fresh, local food, we experimented in Alex' fraternity kitchen, ultimately growing one test bucket of oyster mushrooms. With that one bucket and incredible support from the community, we decided to forgo our investment banking and consulting offers. Instead we became full-time urban mushroom farmers and haven't looked back since!

Member advice stand:
Learn how to reduce the stresses of being a hard-working social entrepreneur with help from Reba Connell at
The Center for Stress Reduction.

 

And as always...
Networking with like-minded folks,
