Mycofarm is a community-based approach to implement needed housing and addressing climate change, food security, economic equity, and waste regeneration, and, in the process, transform our city into a livable, joyful and just place.


Thank you for visiting the mycofarm project repository. This document (the README file) is a hub to give you some information about the project. This project will follow the practice of “working open” to use the power, knowledge, and skills of a diverse community of contributors to accomplish something that a single person or a small team couldn’t do alone.

The problem

What are we doing about it?

We are creating a community regeneration model anchored on regenerative agriculture practices and deployed via a place-based hub and spoke system. Mycofarm will increase the amount of healthy, local food purchased by local institutions, such as schools and hospitals, as well as restaurants and hotels, and support the marketing of the local food and human service industries.

Mycofarm’s economic anchor will be mycofarming, urban agriculture and biocycling.

Mycofarm’s deployment strategy will be a place-based hub and spoke system.

Why are we doing it this way?

The time to address the issues our community faces one-at-a-time is over. Interconnected problems require interconnected solutions. Systems theory tells us that a single intervention designed to address a specific problem is not likely to produce satisfactory results in the long term. We recognize the importance of social networks and community participation in large scope and large scale problem solving and the power of our collective imagination to sustain a cohesive solution.
