Pioneering Mycology Since 1995
Established in 1995 by the visionary Glen Babcock, Garden City Fungi emerged as a trailblazer in organic specialty mushrooms. What began as a humble endeavour to cultivate nature's bounty soon revealed an even more significant potential within the intricate realm of mycelium. As the years unfolded, it became evident that mycelium held the power to produce delectable mushrooms and to revolutionize many industries.
Garden City Fungi embarked on a remarkable journey, birthing a diverse array of products that harnessed the exceptional biological prowess of mycelium. Among our groundbreaking innovations stands the ExHale line—an embodiment of our commitment to fostering flourishing indoor gardens and greenhouses. Elevating photosynthesis, magnifying yields, and nurturing ecosystems, ExHale is a testament to our dedication to innovation.
Venturing into uncharted waters, we introduced Underwater CO2 products, extending their influence from seaweed cultivation to aquatic enthusiasts and championing effective mosquito and insect control. As if reaching for the stars, we even contributed to space travel with our CO2-emitting creations.
At Garden City Fungi, our journey is not solely about cultivating mushrooms; it's a story of innovation, expertise, and a shared passion for harnessing the power of mycelium. Since our inception in 1995, our team has been a dynamic force, pushing boundaries and exploring the uncharted territories of mycology. Let us introduce you to the brilliant minds driving our mission:
