The Spawn Laboratory

Lost Creek Mushroom Farm has donated a portion of all sales to the project. MIG has provided most of the equipment required for the laboratory. The equipment is too large for the current facility and major renovation is required, including electrical, plumbing, and sterile-room provisions. Sandra and Douglass were in in Ghana in 2016. The project supplied lab equipment, spawn, an LED projector for training, equipment and materials for processing and packaging, and supported programs, demonstrations and training for farmers. In addition Bernard Bempah and the Williams’ developed design and construction plans for the laboratory. Bemcom has purchased the land, will have it graded for construction and will move and restructure the livestock area to reduce the possibility of contamination. The estimated cost of the Bemcom-Williams West African Mushroom Spawn Laboratory is $100,000. 1,000 people giving $100 will build this laboratory.

Please support Mushrooms in Ghana Project with your generous donations. Please contact people, especially Ghanaians, who can make this dream, “Freedom from Poverty,” a reality. Encourage their involvement! A spawn lab can provide thousands of farmers with sustainable economic security. Hundreds of thousands of consumers can have healthy, low-cost, high-protein food throughout West Africa.

Thank you – Let this be just the beginning!
