Description

Join Myco Alliance for an immersive educational experience that will give you the skills to create a foundation for your own mushroom cultivation practice.

In this workshop we will cover theory and skills for growing edible and medicinal mushrooms and provide you with the framework to integrate this knowledge into your home, garden, or farm. The workshop will cover production methods on logs and stumps, wood chips and composts, straw bales and other agricultural byproducts, as well as low-tech cultivation and recycling common “wastes”. Included in the class are ways of converting existing structures, the business and marketing of mushrooms, and value-added products that you can create to give you a competitive advantage.

We have limited space so we ask that you register in advance. You may request to be put on a waiting list if course is full.
