SIMPLIFYING MUSHROOM CULTIVATION AT HOME
This is an online, hands-on series of 8 sessions (11 hours) to help you grow your own oyster mushrooms without using anything fancy. Follow along & towards the end of this series, you will be able to successfully harvest your first crop.
About the workshop:
Did you know that you can grow mushrooms at home easily, without any tools or equipment!
This is a hands-on training of 2 sessions (3 hours total) to help people grow their own oyster mushrooms without using anything fancy. They can be grown on a variety of substrates available easily at home, including organic waste from the kitchen!
Format for the workshop:
This will be a 2 day workshop, 1 hour 30 minutes per day. First day focuses on the theoretical aspect of mushroom growing at home. The second day we will talk about the “hands-on” aspect of growing mushrooms at home. Towards the end of the session, we will also talk about some quick tips & tricks to naturally enhance the nutritional value of mushrooms.
Why grow mushrooms at home:
Just like any other vegetable, it is very easy to grow oyster mushrooms at home, organically! Oyster mushrooms are excellent sources of proteins, vitamins and some rare minerals like selenium. In addition to this, they are the source of a compound called “lovastatin”, which has been proven to reduce bad cholesterol.

This is an idea workshop for anyone who is interested in either growing their own food at home or is passionate about fungi & its role in our health.
