Firstly, on behalf of the Directors and Staff at Mushroom Guru, I extend a warm welcome and trust that you will have fun doing this course and learning a new skill.
Our offering is vastly unique in that we strive for each and every interaction with you, to be a warm and heartfelt experience.
Thank you for choosing to take this introduction course with us and we trust that it will inspire and propel you into an industry, which has for many years been secretive and unwelcoming. The information that we will be sharing has been carefully compiled from our experiences and best practices, to give you the best outcome possible.
This beginners course will specifically teach you how to cold sterilise a straw substrate and inoculate it with grain spawn that you have purchased. It will start off with only the most important theory that you need to know, then move over to the video demonstrations: how to soak straw in Calcium hydroxide and how to pack a mushroom grow bag.
This course does not cover commercial topics.
Once you grasp these concepts and apply the skill, you will better understand how a mushroom grows and what it requires to fully mature. You can then start to explore various other aspects of cultivation with different species, using multiple techniques.
This course will teach and demonstrate one of the easier cultivating methods to start off with and it will guide you through the information, helping you to get a clear understanding of the "why, what and how" of mushroom cultivation.
