After studying and teaching mycology for over a decade, I know first hand how hard it can be to master the topic. This school is designed to help anyone gain a solid foundation in the many facets of mycology – from biology and ecology, to cultivation, medicine making, and mycoremediation. There is even a course designed for permaculturalists.
The school will start by offering online courses and will also start a demonstration mushroom farm in Portland where the schematics for the tools we build will be made available for free. At the end of 2018 we will also begin offering multi-year apprenticeships in the field (alongside short courses of course).
Please check out the campaign here and share it with your community.

Great work Peter! I am so excited to watch you guys grow. I'm sharing your stuff around and look forward to learning more about your projects. Thanks for all your hard work contributing to a better future.
Do you have a web or Facebook page? Am I blind? I didn't find a link.

Yes, there will be beginner, intermediate, and advanced cultivation skills taught, including super low tech/cost and outdoor methods.
My Testimonial - I own Peter's book and attended one of his 3-day workshops when he came here to Idaho this past summer. I can't say enough good things about Peter's work. I don't have a lot of $ but I contributed everything I could to this kickstarter as I believe this school/program is what will bring mycology to the masses. Until recently, anyone wanting to grow mushrooms had significant barriers to entry - expensive lab equipment, difficult to master techniques, etc - books on the subject were written mainly for the commercial cultivator. Peter "keeps it real" with his approach and shows how anyone can start growing mushrooms on their own, with very little startup $ or background in mycology. Go Peter !
