Grow gourmet mushrooms the way nature intended

Join us in learning how to make a mushroom log that will fruit for many years to come.

Mushrooms are the world's great recyclers, breaking down decaying organic matter and returning nutrients to the soil. Emulating this natural process, we will show you how to grow mushrooms at home with zero waste.

Growing mushrooms on logs requires patience (you'll have to wait up to 12 months for your first mushrooms) but using this method you will get to enjoy mushrooms when the conditions are right for up to 5 years.

Minimum Age: 15 years

What we cover
