Begginers Whatsapp group

We have operated several Whatsapp groups for a long time. These groups have evolved over the  years, right now We operate three groups,  two are  by invite only. I have prepared this article for the beginners group which started recently. Some of the objectives: 1.Help those thinking of doing mushrooms so that they avoid dangers. There are common mistakes  I wish I knew before I started. Hope members avoid these. 2. Help those just starting with tips,  ideas,  trouble shooting and so much more. 3. Help beginners do appropriate research,  when you come across something you are struggling to understand we will help you. 4. We also learn from others so the group is a way of Increasing and sharpening our knowledge and understanding trends in the industry. 5. We hope to create networks with as many and we hope those in the group create critical networks for success. 6. Marketing is critical to any business and we believe those in the group will get help on marketing and most importantly trade among members is encouraged. Before I continue members need to understand we have a set of strict rules which must be obeyed at all times so that group remains on  track and stick to mushroom issues alone. The group admins are there to help if no one is able to answer.  We are full time growers and this group is fueled by passion,...
