This course will introduce the art and science of mushroom cultivation by offering simple, home-scale methods for growing mushrooms for food, medicine and earth renewal. We will focus on fruiting mushrooms for food and medicine, and working with fungi to build soil, boost your garden, and address soil and water contamination. Throughout this course, you will gain experience and hands-on skills to make grow and make mushroom medicine, grow mushrooms in your garden, digest household waste with fungi, and work with fungi for remediation.

Come to this day-long intensive to learn how you can grow nutritious, delicious and medicinal mushrooms where you live. We'll overview basic fungal ecology- what you need to know to grow mushrooms successfully- and then delve into simple ways you can grow mushrooms in your home, garden and farm. We'll focus on the easiest mushrooms to grow- Oyster, Garden Giant, Shiitake and Lions Mane- and go through their nutritional and medicinal properties and ways to grow them. Then well get hands-on experience making mushroom logs and mushroom beds in a food forest garden, as well as offering tips for companion planting mushrooms within veggie beds and orchards, mushrooms and composting, and the important role of mycorhizal fungi in the garden and orchard.

Each partipant will make their own Oyster mushroom grow kit to take home. Participants will leave with two mushroom growing projects, detailed handouts, and an understanding other cool stuff they can do with their mushroom kits- from building healthy soil, exploring a small-scale myco-remediation project, to scaling up food and medicine production.


Cost: pay-what-you-can between $85-125
