The Mushroom Initiative Limited
The Mushroom Initiative Limited (TMI) was registered as not-for-profit organization in Hong Kong in 2009. TMI is highlighting the role of fungus in the cycle of nature and also advances education relating to organic and sustainable living in the communities. Over ten thousand mushroom growing kits had been produced to local farmers, community groups and individuals in community. Hundreds of outreach workshops and site visits were conducted to introduce the importance of fungi in our ecosystem. TMI encourages environmental protection and waste reduction through the cultivation of organic mushrooms by using local community wastes as substrates. Starting from 2017, there are different mycorrhizal reforestation projects as climate change mitigation projects in Asian countries supported by TMI that promotes the restoration and reforestation of the diversified natural forest by the usage of mycorrhizal fungi.
