Mushroom Cultivation Workshops
Interested in starting your own mushroom farm?
Every year more people are growing mushrooms for fun and profit. This is because the demand for gourmet and medicinal mushrooms is skyrocketing.
Every mushroom cultivation workshop includes a lecture, hands on activity, an opportunity to work in a laboratory, and a tour of our facility. Every student will go home with a ready-to-fruit mushroom block and 2 commercial mushroom cultures. This class is suitable for students with previous mushroom cultivation experience, especially those with an interest in commercial production.
