"Siemen and Mark showed me everything from coffee collection, substrate preparation, room conditioning, harvesting, product development and a whole lot more. Therefore I strongly recommend everyone who thinks about starting a business as a mushroom grower, everyone who likes to grow mushrooms at home, or everyone who is interested in environmental issues and sustainability, to gain knowledge and be inspired by the awesome people at RotterZwam."

"I decided to start farming mushrooms because I’m passionated and fascinated with the idea that you can turn something that is considered as waste into something that has value, into food. I decided to start with the online mushroom course by rotterzwam because I think it’s a very good base to start to understand how you can farm mushrooms and it also helps you NOT to make a pretty good amount of mistakes. I would recommend rotterzwam simply because they have a good track record and they have a good succes rate I would say."

"The education program by rotterzwam helped me launch my own mushroom venture in Limburg in the south of the Netherlands. I'm grateful for all they have shared. It helped me change my career and become a successful mushroom farmer."
