At this hands-on course, you’ll learn everything you would ever want to know about the “Magic and Mystery of Growing Mushrooms.” Whether it’s in your home, backyard, garage, work, school or wherever, really, class instructor Max Meyers will make sure you leave with enough knowledge to grow your own ‘shrooms there for edible purposes, medicinal purposes and much more. You’ll also leave with your very own organic, living, edible gourmet mushroom kit by creating your own indoor/outdoor mini-farm in class. It should produce mushrooms for several months to come! Meyers is a registered Aquaculturist and owner of Nor Cal Aquaponics. He has 15 years of permaculture experience as a farmer, homesteader, professional designer, installer and teacher, often leading ecology classes around the Northern California area. This one-of-a-kind mushroom mastery class is happening on Saturday, Jan. 28 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the registration fee being $79 (there is also a $12 materials fee).
