Growing your own mushrooms is an easy way to boost your home-grown nutrition and grow your own medicine. This workshop will offer an overview of some of the many ways you can grow mushrooms indoors at your home, apartment or on a balcony; and highlight ways you can make use of household waste as a food source for your mushrooms.This is suitable for beginners to mushroom cultivation, and for those who have tried without success to grow mushrooms. We will go through and demonstrate growing Oyster, Shiitake and Lions Mane mushrooms and offer instructions for doing it yourself.
