Mushroom Farms


When our mushrooms sprout
from the ground,
a happy time begins for us.



Earning one‘s own income by cultivating mushrooms

Cultivated mushrooms are a rarity in Simikot and the surrounding villages. The demand is growing steadily.

For this reason, our women's group has selected one or two women from each group to learn the art of mushroom cultivation. Participants were provided with the necessary materials and mycelium for the mushroom farms in exchange for a small cost contribution - which comes from the sale of the greenhouse vegetables. Now, in several training sessions, they learn everything about the cultivation, breeding, harvesting and preservation of these precious nutrient - suppliers.
