Radical Mycology co-founder Peter McCoy will be holding a 2.5 day intensive on the theory, practice, and application of mushroom cultivation this October in his home town of Olympia, Washington. This course covers the essentials of mushroom production for all budgets, with an emphasis on techniques and tools that keep costs and complexity to a minimum. Whether you are looking to start a small mushroom farm or grow your own edible and medicinal mushrooms for personal use, this course will cover the core skills needed to hit the ground running.

Topics covered include:
Budgeting, planning & preparation
Cultivation and fruiting environments
Tool making and improvisation
Sterile practice with agar, grains, compost, and wood-based substrates
Alternative, low-cost, and low-tech cultivation techniques and tools
Medicinal mushroom processing and myconutraceutical product production
Wild mushroom identification and cultivation
Outdoor mushroom forest planning and installation
Mycoremediation concepts and strategies
Fungal & plant relationships
Mycorrhizal cultivation
& much more!

The instruction model Peter uses caters to all learning modes by offering a blend of visual presentation, live demonstration, hands-on practice, and a tour of a home-based mushroom lab. At the end of the course, participants will get 4 pure mushroom cultures (valued at $100) and a 100-page workbook of the techniques covered.

Dates: October 18-20 (Friday eve, Saturday & Sunday full day)
Location: Olympia, WA
Cost: $200

Looks promising



It should read as "aseptic", not "sterile; on their website. A common mistake

I would totally be there if I could afford it. And for once I am not complaining about the price but expressing a genuine frustration with my lack of funds whilst encouraging others to CHECK THIS OUT
