3 Classes To Get You Growing Mushrooms Abundantly At Home.
Grow Shiitake, Oyster, Lion’s Mane, Chestnut, Wine Cap And Other Species Easily At Home.



It is more important than ever to have a resilient food system and be producing fresh food at home. This course will introduce and dive into 8 different methods of cultivation that can easily be done at home with no special equipment or technical skills. You will go over the common mushrooms that are cultivated, what exactly mushrooms/fungi are, and how we can relate to them to provide benefit for us, our community, and the land we grow on. This course is for anyone interested in growing or finding mushrooms for themselves and their family with a little extra for their community. It could be 2-20 pounds weekly or a couple pounds every couple of weeks.

Skills you will gain:
- Grow mushrooms for your family and community, anywhere from 1-50 lbs per week
- Understand the mushroom life cycle and ecological roles
- Have an outline to the stages of mushroom cultivation
- Successful cultivation of outdoor cultivation on logs, totems, and stumps
- Outdoor cultivation of Wine cap on woodchips
- Indoor or outdoor cultivation of oyster mushrooms on straw
- Indoor oyster mushroom cultivation on coffee grounds and other materials
- Expanding mycelium without a lab
- Making spawn of any mushroom species using syringes and grain
- 5-7 Easy to identify wild mushrooms










Testimonials:

Willie Crosby was the perfect teacher for our Home Mushroom Cultivation class. I saw him stumped only once about an obscure mushroom name. Literally every other question that 20(ish) students threw at him throughout three full sessions was met with answers that were, at once, accessible to a novice like me yet detailed enough to inform more experienced mushroom growers.​

- Larry, Student Dec 2020

I received the course and have already started watching and learning!!! You truly are a great teacher and coach.

- Margie, Student June 2020

I am so grateful that we have found you as a resource! I was very impressed with you as an educator. You were very thoughtful about the information you rolled out so that it did not seem overwhelming. I am a teacher and I know great teaching when I see it!

- Marian, Student April 2020

This looks amazing, and exactly what I have on my wish list to learn next! What great timing!

Wondered if Fungi Ally can ship products and kit to the UK at all?

Hi Rachael! I'm not sure to be honest as the classes listed here are completely online so there is no need to ship anything. The material does seem to contain resource references so maybe that'll help you find resources closer to home for growing?

Did you know that these classes are currently on offer as a stretch goal in our Kickstarter campaign? Maybe see if that is a good fit for you as if we hit the stretch goal you'll get this item and a massive load of other goodies.

Check out the Kickstarter here.

I popped over to their website for supplies, but can't see anything about shipping to the UK, but will check out alternatives in the UK if not. They seemed very knowledgeable so I wanted to support them.

YES! I'm a supporter already and am so excited about all of these extras coming our way

I downloaded the free lesson on growing shitake mushrooms and am looking forward to learning all he can throw at me!

My only criticism is that the color of the type is rather light and is challenging for older eyes to see.  Does anyone have suggestions on whether it's possible/how to increase the contrast on the screen?

I enjoyed this class! I feel like it wasn't too much information. Not too little, either. Just enough to understand the basic concepts of mushroom ID, and growing for a good variety of species. Now I feel like I can learn more about any discussed topics that piqued my interest from this class. I could also order a grow kit and start today.

Hi Aimee,

It is a series of 3 videos that you can work through at your own pace.  You should see the 3 videos embedded in the top post of this thread.  Does that help?
 
Hear that? The pitter patter of tiny ads.
