After the successful crowdfunding campaign Helsieni went on to an autumn full of work. Once the containers arrived in Hernesaari, we started building the mushroom farm. We are designing and building the whole farm ourselves.
As mushroom home growers know, important in mushroom growing is the right temperature and humidity at the right time. Therefore, there are two containers: the first for incubating and the second for fruiting. Finnish climate and changing seasons make container farming more challenging. Even if outside it’s freezing cold or a heat wave, the mushrooms growing inside the containers must have stable conditions.
Construction continues regardless of the snow piling up outside of our containers. Our aim is to get mushroom production started as soon as possible.
A big thank you to all volunteers for your valuable help in building or farm!
