Mushroom Growing Workshop
Fungitown’s hands on, fun and interactive workshop will teach you everything you need to know to cultivate your own mushrooms at home.
Hands on mushroom growing the easy way.
From Spores and Spawn to Agar and Petri dishes, to inoculating grain and colonising substrates, to pinning and fruiting. With a lot about Hydration, Bacteria, Oxygen and Paul Stamets in between.
Leave with an agar plate, a liquid mycelium syringe, a jar of inoculated grain and two colonised packs of substrate, all made by you during the course – with the practical knowledge to carry on at home.
On this course you will learn:
All about mushrooms and how they grow.
Making and growing from a spore syringe and cloning on an agar dish
Preparing and inoculating the grain jars
Preparing and inoculating the substrate
Moisture, air and temperature to trigger fruiting
Picking and storage
It’s easy! – once you know how
Cost – R2500.00 per person
We generally run workshops on the last Sunday of the month. More dates on request.
