What you will do

The workshop will start with an informative session where Wouter introduces different growth media, substrates, cultivation methods and fungal strains, as well as the potential of mycelium. There will be enough time to ask any questions you might have about mushrooms. You will take home a bag of substrate to cultivate oyster mushrooms and with knowledge on how to extract spawn from fully grown mushroom.

During this introduction course we learned how to cultivate the Oyster Mushroom at home and by doing so gained a better understanding of the potential of this organism.
