Description

Learn how to cultivate your own mushrooms at home with Fifth Season Gardening's resident mycologist, Jesse Cerrato!

This class is geared towards anyone looking to gain a better understanding of the life cycle of edible mushrooms in a controlled environment. Edible mushrooms are a delicious addition to meals as they are composed of a wide spectrum of essential amino acids, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and are even capable of producing potent medicinal properties. Learning how to grow mushrooms at home requires a basic understanding of their nutritional needs. Jesse will teach you how to utilize common resource/waste products such as mulch, straw, and sawdust for easy mushroom cultivation. In this class, you will get to make and take home your own inoculated Blue Oyster mushroom block!

Ready dive in to your new hobby? Fifth Season Gardening has everything you need to set up your own mushroom growing chamber at home! This includes a small indoor greenhouse, digital humidisat, timer, and fan. All you need is a corner of a shady room and a basic humidifier to farm mushrooms off of your own spawn block! Pre-order yours by 9/18 to pick up at the class or order at the class – just $180! *To order, call the store at (828) 412-3200. Pre-payment is required.

About the Instructor: Jesse Cerrato has been hunting and learning about mushrooms for over a decade. A self-proclaimed "mushroom nerd," Jesse's interest in the fascinating world of mycelium led him to co-found Resting Point Farms in 2016 on his family's land where he grows and provides edible mushrooms to local restaurants in the Asheville area.
