CULTIVATION: Whether you are growing on acres or a tabletop, you’ll learn everything you need to start cultivating without spending an arm and a leg as well as the steps to scale up to commercial growing. We’ll cover the life cycle of fungi; mushroom behavior and intuitive growing; choosing, buying, and storing spawn; woodland mushroom farming (logs, wood chips, and composts); indoor production (small and large scale); converting existing structures into grow rooms (barns, chicken houses, storage containers): marketing your mushrooms (trends, demand, strategies); organic pest management; alternative product development (powders, extracts, composts).

Get hands on, returning home with inoculated logs and wood chips to start you on your path to cultivation.

MEDICINAL MUSHROOMS:  The research keeps pouring in confirming the role of fungi in boosting our immune systems and providing potential cures. Explore the most potent medicinal mushrooms and learn the cultivation principles and preparations including powders, extracts, and many other forms that will stimulate health and enhance well-being.

MYCOREMEDIATION: Mushrooms not only have the ability to repair our bodies, but they're pretty aces at repairing the environment by breaking down toxins in the water and soil. Learn the numerous applications of mycoremediation along with biomass expansion, site engineering, and species of mushrooms that can be used for mycoremediation projects.

Whether you have a rooftop, patio, yard, or farm, these techniques of cultivation, medicine making, and remediation can be used. We’ll explore successful strategies that can be customized to your situation. Mushrooms are our allies, and it's high time we learn how to maximize their potential. Whether you're a permaculturalist, an herbalist, or pretty much any human who cares about the wellness of the earth and the community, this is a workshop not to miss. 

PARKING: Please park by the farm and you'll be guided up to the common house. The address is 529 Summit Dr. Decatur, GA 30032. PLEASE keep in mind this is a residential area and we need to be careful to only park on one side of the street on Summit or Swayze and not block any driveways or mailboxes. If you're able to park a little further out and are willing to walk, that would be wonderful in order to reduce congestion in the neighborhood.

About the Instructor:
Tradd Cotter is a microbiologist, professional mycologist, and organic gardener, who has been tissue culturing, collecting native fungi in the Southeast, and cultivating both commercially and experimentally for more than twenty-two years. In 1996 he founded Mushroom Mountain, which he owns and operates with his wife, Olga, to explore applications for mushrooms in various industries and currently maintains over 200 species of fungi for food production, mycoremediation of environmental pollutants, and natural alternatives to chemical pesticides. His primary interest is in low-tech and no-tech cultivation strategies so that anyone can grow mushrooms on just about anything, anywhere in the world. Mushroom Mountain is currently expanding to 42,000 square feet of laboratory and research space near Greenville, South Carolina, to accommodate commercial production, as well as mycoremediation projects. Tradd, Olga, and their daughter, Heidi, live in Liberty, South Carolina. (From Chelsea Green Publishing)
