Rainstick is a novel indigenous Australian electrobiology startup combining traditional knowledge systems and modern electrokinetics for the future of food.

Working with Australian Aboriginal elders of the Maiawali people, Rainstick observes a thousand year old tradition of using lightning to support the mycelial network in the soil.

As nations look for ways to address climate change and food security, Rainstick provides an indoor and outdoor acceleration to nutrient dense protein production at a price developing nations can afford.
