Meeting needs with mushrooms

Hey, all you trendy urban gardeners! Do you know how easy it is to grow mushrooms? Maybe you do. At the New Life Center in Northern Uganda, they grow mushrooms with just a bag of dirt and manure, some string, a bit of water, and a dark room. Mushroom growing is on the schedule for Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Every day, the door of the mushroom shed opens to reveal a fresh, new crop.
These mushrooms are eaten by the residents and staff at the New Life Center.
The child mothers take turns cooking for and cleaning up after one another.
Mushroom farming is a skill these child mothers will take with them
when they leave the Center.
