About the event
2 HOUR PREMIUM BEGINNERS HANDS ON WORKSHOP (INCLUDES MEGA TAKE HOME KIT)
Join Urban Kulture in their never ending tour of Australia as they bring you a wonderful presentation and hands-on skill development in gourmet mushroom cultivation... Learn how to grow your own Oyster, shiitake, reishi, lions mane and other varieties of mushrooms as we take you through the steps of mushroom cultivation, with a focus on using urbanly available
waste products all in a fun and friendly environment. You will make and take home enough kit to potentially grow over 10 kilos of oyster mushrooms!
Our workshop covers the production of mushrooms using non sterile techniques. You will learn about all the steps involved in mushroom production, from cultures to creating spawn and fruiting substrates. We will teach you to create your own oyster mushroom spawn using nothing but waste stem butts from fresh mushrooms, we will also show how to turn a 2kg bag of purchased grain spawn into 270kgs of mushrooms through our low tech spawn expansion and finally into fruiting blocks using five different urbanly available substrates: Cardboard, Paper Pellets, Hardwood Pellets, spent coffee grounds and straw!!
These types of mushrooms can be grown indoors in small spaces so it doesn’t matter if you live in a van, an apartment, a farm or a mansion. This is the easiest, highest success rate low tech method around. Mushroom growing is for everyone!
