Interested in growing mushrooms at home? Chris Swinson of Mycophile's Garden will lead this fascinating program where you will learn how to grow beautiful, delicious mushrooms in your yard, garden, or garage. This 2-hour introductory cultivation class will cover all the basics of modern mushroom cultivation, focusing on growing mushrooms on the home and hobbyist level.
We will discuss what mushrooms can be cultivated, as well as when, where and how to grow over 2 dozen species of rare and delicious gourmet mushrooms with minimal input or cost. The class will provide you with the basics to begin your journey into mushroom cultivation, as well as the resources to expand your hobby on your own.
