Hey folks,
I will be leading a 2.5-day Mushroom Cultivation & Application Course in Missoula on August 5-7.

Designed for the beginner as well the experienced cultivator, this course covers everything you need to know to start producing high quality mushroom spawn, fruit mushrooms indoors all year, construct a mushroom farm, and establish regenerative outdoor mycoscapes. Topics include:

Mushroom Cultivation Fundamentals

• The biology, ecology, and history of the Fungal Kingdom
• The principles underlying the art and science of cultivation
• Aseptic (“sterile”) practices with agar, grains, compost, and wood-based materials
• Liquid-based mushroom cultivation practices
• Place-based resource management and systems design principles
• Lab and fruiting environment designs for home-, farm-, or community-scale projects
• Appropriate, low-cost, and low-tech cultivation methods and tools
• Growing wild mushrooms

Appropriate Applications of Fungi

Medicinal mushroom processing for maximum potency
• Outdoor mushroom garden design and installation
• Fungal integration into various permaculture-inspired sustainable living systems
• Mycoremediation chemistry and design concepts
• Supporting and diversifying fungal–plant relationships

Extra Myco-Skills

• Building soil health through cultivating mycorrhizal fungi
Biochar & fungi
• Biogas & fungi

• Resources & much more!

Tuition includes 4 mushroom cultures (valued at $100), supplies, and a 100-page workbook. Student and group discounts are also available.
