Mushroom growing is gaining in popularity as people are better understanding the health benefits as well as the culinary value. Various mushrooms have peaked peoples interest for home cultivation. Growing shiitakes, lion's mane, wine caps and oyster mushrooms are an excellent way to easily grow mushrooms for your own consumption.

The class will cover three different methods to grow mushrooms year round. These three methods range from beginner to intermediate so anyone could participate, even kids! Mushroom growing is a unique experience that brings learning opportunities for growing your own food.

Grow your food. Eat your mushrooms.

About the Instructor: Nik Prenevost cultivated mushrooms at Mississippi Mushrooms LLC for seven years from 2012-2019 and is currently a consultant for growing mushrooms in the Twin Cities. 

"I believe in supplementing your diet with locally sourced food that you have grown yourself. It is the ultimate way to know what it is in your food and what inputs it took to grow it. Cultivating mushrooms is one of the most satisfying forms of growing food I have experienced, especially since the turn around is so quick in comparison to tradition garden growing plants. Fungal farming is an exciting adventure that keeps me learning new techniques to cultivate but also insights into how our own biome works. When I grow mushrooms, I feel so connected to the food source and the final dish tastes that much better. I want to help people learn through easy techniques to grow mushrooms and be apart of this growing trend."
