Correspondence Mushroom Cultivation Course
We are proud to be Australia's leading teachers of Mushroom Cultivation. Having taught people from Uganda, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Japan, USA, Europe, India and all over Australia, we have decided to offer our courses by correspondence. Why? Well not everyone can afford to travel to us, or set aside a weekend for a workshop. Through undertaking a correspondence course, you will learn how to grow your own mushrooms at home, at your own pace.
You will receive all the basic equipment and supplies needed to learn how to grow mushrooms at home including: agar, petri dishes, spawn bags, fruiting bags and six different species of delicious gourmet mushrooms on agar. Overseas these cultures alone would cost twice the price of this package
When you sign up to do Forest Fungi’s course, you will learn how to grow the many different Oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus sp.), Shiitakes (Lentinula edodes), Pioppino (Agrocybe aegetia), Reishi (Ganoderma sp.) and a host of other Saprophytic mushrooms.
We'll take you all the way from "cloning" a store bought mushroom, building a simple still air box, making organic grain spawn, making your own sawdust spawn and dowel spawn, right through to fruiting your mushrooms on logs, in buckets, bags, jars or ceramic pots.
You will receive detailed notes taking you though the process step by step. The most important thing about this course is the on-going support through on-line correspondence to make sure you will be growing loads of mushrooms for you, your family, friends or people at the farmers market (if that's what you want to do)!
You will also receive an added bonus: access to our Culture Club, which gives you big discounts on select products.
