What Others Have Said:

Julian Mitchel LifeCykel Mushroom Farm (Australia)

We needed a good body of knowledge and expertise, and we really got that from GroCycle. The support and advice we received was invaluable - it was the base of everything that LifeCykel has been built on."

“I was worried the course would not meet my high expectation for detailed information; that it would leave me with the need to do more research or search out other sources to supplement what was presented....

Boy was I wrong! It is SO well structured and fully informative. The quality is fantastic!”

Emily Goss (US)
Peter Twigg (Australia)

"My big fear about courses are that I will get a few small gems and waste a lot of time when I can usually just search the net.

Let me say I have been absolutely delighted with the content, delivery & community you have brought together. Your website, video content & simple presentation has been excellent.

The interface with FB for questions and the Q&A sessions was very powerful as you both were able to respond live or in writing to our questions which was very personal and helpful."
