Grow Organic Spirulina is an online community of Spirulina growers, established by Ditsa Keren and Natan Gammer, independent researchers from Israel, in order to share and acquire knowledge and experience related to growing spirulina, and encourage new growers to get started.
Our research is focused on finding cost-effective, bio-available, and energy-efficient cultivation methods that can be used in multiple use case scenarios, and feeding methods that can qualify spirulina as organic.
After experimenting with various different methods of growing Spirulina, we finally managed to Figure out the perfect conditions for growing organic spirulina at home. We decided to share our knowledge and experience with the rest of the world so that everybody can enjoy good quality organic Spirulina. That’s how this website was born.
Fast forward to 2021, this little side project has become a strong active community with thousands of members and dozens of discussion groups across the media all related to the cultivation, trade, and marketing of spirulina.
We see ourselves as market facilitators and welcome collaborations from all ends of the industry.
