Story of the project

Discover all the stages of the project's development!


First Tests

march 2013

Development of the project at the Atelier des Tanneurs and development of the first partner - EXKI.

Installation at Tour & Taxis

march 2014

Production is exploding, so we need to find a bigger place for our activities. The unoccupied cellars of Tour & Taxis offer an ideal space.

The first growing kits go on sale

september 2014

In order to make as many people as possible aware of urban agriculture, we have developed kits for growing mushrooms at home.

Inauguration of a new mushroom farm

december 2015

The project expands and is offered a second mushroom farm in Saint-Gilles managed by Laurence.

Expansion of our workshops

september 2016

Production is increasing, as is the surface area of our workshops. From 200m2 to 1000m2!

Launch of the chicory project

november 2016

In order to go further in the circular economy and to valorise even more our residue from the oyster mushroom production (used as fertilizer), we have launched the production of organic and open ground chicory. After 2 years of development, this project will finally be stopped in March 2019.

Launch of the project LumiFungi

november 2016

In order to go further in the circular economy and to further valorise our oyster mushroom production residue (used as fertiliser), we have set up a partnership with a designer, Caroline Pultz, to develop a mushroom-based material.

New Partner - Le Pain Quotidien

july 2017

This new partnership has allowed us to recycle even more coffee grounds and significantly increase our mushroom production.

Production is booming

january 2018

Oyster mushroom production reaches 1T per month.
