Thanks for sharing! I'm curious: what kind of organic waste are you using to experiment with cultivate mushrooms?

Shannon Hulley

My pleasure, Vera! The long-term idea would be to use mixed compost - food trimmings/waste and vegetation, but first we're seeing if we can 'spawn' mushrooms using a honey/water starter, little cuttings of wild mushrooms, and a sawdust mixture. It's a many-phase project and is kind of confusing. I'm giving it an honest go but my first batch went moldy!

Wow, neat concept. The first (and only) time I tried to cultivate mushrooms they went moldy. Don't give up -- where there's a will there's a way!

Shannon Hulley

Aww, thanks! Glad to hear that the mold isn't completely unusual.
