About the event
After 3 years of online and hybrid style workshops, Aaron is finally back in Perth to deliver his 2 beginner, hands on workshops in person. Join us for either: '5 Minute Mushroom Kit' (level 1) or '5 Minute Grain Spawn' (level 2) or get a value deal and attend both!
Here is a run down of each workshop:
5 Minute Mushroom Kit: A short course on making mushroom grow kits from grain spawn (Level 1)
This is our most simplified, introductory gourmet and medicinal mushroom cultivation course.
It's 'all you need to know to get you growing as fast as possible.'
Here's what you need to know:
- The lingo – the 5 words you need to know to start speaking mushroom cultivation
- The technique – Learn to create your very own mushroom growing kits in only 5 minutes
- The aftercare – How to successfully ignore your kits as they do their thing
- The fruiting – The part where you grow the mushrooms!
- The multiple harvests – how to get as many mushrooms out of your kits as possible
- The supplies – what to get and where to get it from
After the presentation you will have the opportunity to make your own mushroom grow kit to take home with you! (Value $25)
You will also receive access to the ‘5-minute mushroom kit’ community group on our website for continued learning and access to a recording of the presentation.
There is no specialised or expensive equipment needed for this technique.
Not only will you have all the mushrooms you can eat, you will never need to buy another birthday or Christmas gift again. Mushroom kits for everyone!
Workshop Duration: approx 1 hour and 45 minutes Workshop Cost: $75 (includes take home mushroom kit)
5 Minute Grain Spawn: A short course in making your own grain spawn from Liquid Culture (Level 2)
The follow on from ‘The 5-Minute Mushroom Kit’ this workshop will expand your mushroom cultivation skillset by dipping your toes into sterile technique and learning how to make our own grain spawn (in only 5 minutes!).
This course is still very much suited for the beginner and will not require any expensive equipment purchases. You already know how to make fruiting kits from spawn (inoculant) so now it’s time to reduce your per kit cost and dive a little deeper into cultivation by learning how to make your own.
Much like the 5-minute kit, 5-minute grain spawn is designed for minimal time inputs, no special equipment and super easy to follow techniques.
Here is a quick rundown of what you will learn:
· Some new lingo, another 5 words you need to know!
· How to make a still air box for doing sterile work
· How to take a spore print and make a multi spore syringe
· Grain spawn inoculation using liquid culture or multi spore solution
· Grain to grain transfers for second generation spawn
· How to look after and store your spawn
After the presentation, you will make your very own SAB to work in and you will inoculate and take home 2 bags of grain spawn which can then be turned into as many as 10x mushroom fruiting kits!
Of course, this is not just the live event, you will also have unlimited access to a recording of the course as well as access to the ‘5-Minute Grain Spawn’ group accessed via the website to ask any questions as they arise, show off your grain spawn grows and be part of a wonderful growing community!
Workshop Duration: Approx 2 hours Workshop Cost: $100 (includes your very own SAB and 2x bags of grain spawn)
Book in for both workshops for just $150 (That's $25 off the individual workshop pricing)
