the first urban mushroom factory farm of Bouches-du-Rhône was inaugurated on 12 December, a project supported by Eiffage Immobilier Sud Est, which funded concrete to make the cellar slab.
Following the collapse of mushroom production in the 1980s, Maxime Quemin created the association “Les champignons de Marseille”.
Maxime Quemin now wants to develop this new loop for the city and businesses of the Aix-Marseille metropolis, and is part of a united effort by creating jobs for people who are far from the labour market and want to learn how to farm in urban areas.
What about the long term? 10 tons of oyster mushrooms a year, and why not outsource the mushroom to grow in Marseillais compost.
