About Us

GroCycle is an award-winning social enterprise growing Oyster mushrooms from a huge waste stream: waste coffee grounds.

We have launched the UK's first Urban Mushroom Farm in Exeter, UK.

Our farm is a showcase for how food can be grown sustainably: taking used coffee grounds and converting it into protein rich, healthy oyster mushrooms.

With an increase in Urban Agriculture our farm will undoubtedly serve as a flagship model for more city farms in the future.

We also launched the UK's first GYO Kit allowing everyone to grow mushrooms on coffee at home.
