Visit from Master’s Students to Mycelio

VolterraNews MycoRestore

Mycelio and Volterra hosted master students from Abat Oliba CEU University of Barcelona. Ten students and 3 teachers from the Master Food and Beverage Sustainable Entrepreneurship from the Abat Oliba CEU University visited Mas Rajols and Mas Avenc in Tavertet.

They toured the substrate and mushroom operation, participated in harvesting mushrooms, were introduced to the MycoRestore project and saw our circular business model in action with the biochar-compost production. The visit ended with tasting some delicious mushroom plates prepared at the Raconet restaurant. A useful discussion was held on the importance of “local” in food consumption and the role these type of projects can play in fixing employement and wealth in rural areas.
