Mushroom farming improving livelihoods in Hurungwe, Zimbabwe

Experts claim mushroom production has become one of the fastest-growing agro-business ventures in Zimbabwe. It seems that mushroom farming remains a low-hanging fruit to achieve national food security as enunciated in the National Development Strategy 1, which identifies food security and nutrition as drivers of economic revival.

Mushroom production has become popular among farmers and individuals because it allows the recycling of materials such as sawdust, banana leaves, husks, and dung, which could otherwise pollute the environment, to be turned into nourishing delights.

Growers will be aided by the DanChurchAid-led, Utariri biodiversity stewardship program, which is proactively closing the skills gap which inhibits farmers from entering this space by working with four consortium partners - namely, African Wildlife Foundation (AWF), Bushlife Africa Trust, Farmers Association of Community Self Help Trust (FACHIG), and Future of Hope Foundation (FoHF).
