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 fungal installations. Topics include:

• 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
