OTEPIC   mushroom growing project, The mushroom project was started with an idea of  improving food security and  economic sustainability in the community, many groups of women and youths are taught and supported to start the mushroom project in the community. This can serve as supplemental or major source of income, depending on the size of the farming activity and the number of mushroom houses. People with physical disabilities are fully capable of accomplishing all required tasks necessary in mushroom cultivation, although sometimes some modifications in techniques, handling, tools and equipment may be required.

Mushrooms can be produced within 2 – 4 months and can be sold fresh on the local market. Spawns or seeds and spawn bags can be bought at a reasonably low cost thus offering an acceptable profit margin.

Market opportunity is essential and is verified through constancy in demand for mushrooms and stability in price over the years.
