Mushroom Workshop


Mushroom Workshop project aims to provide the participants a sustainable income source by establishing a mushroom production field in the region besides enabling the integration of the societies.


For the project, a mushroom workshop was established in a cave of 600sqm. The women are trained regarding healthy agricultural practices in mushroom cultivation. 35 women including 20 Syrian refugees and 15 locals receive salary from the state as being registered to the social security institution. Moreover, the mushrooms produced by these women are sold to large retail chains and return to women via Şükraan Agricultural Development Cooperative.
