Mycelium Sawdust Project
This project is a direct replacement for plastic supports such as neoprene collars or net pots with coir and vermiculite. The MycoCollar is organic, sustainable and compostable.
ProblemMany forms of water based crop production require supports, many of which are plastic or non-sustainable materials. Clearing, cleaning and sterilizing supports for reuse is messy, unproductive, incurs labor costs and damage to the supports.
SolutionOur organic, sustainable support solution is rugged, it ensures plant safety, and it can be composted with other unused plant materials saving a great deal of frustration and labor, at an attractive price.
We live in an area that has one of the highest concentrations of timber with some of that product milled close by providing a continuous, low-cost supply of our main raw material, sawdust.
We have managed a small aquaponics system for over three years and currently sell modest amounts of produce to high end restaurants. The need for our collar was a result of our production needs.
