Are you curious about mushrooms and have you ever wanted to cultivate your own edible mushrooms? Andrew will answer your questions, tell you a bit about how mushrooms grow, and will show you his simple and reliable method for cultivating oyster mushrooms. You will then make your own oyster mushroom growing kit using recycled and easily obtained materials. Take the kits you made home and watch them first fill out the bag and then grow out the sides. In 3 to 4 weeks you should have your own crop of oyster mushrooms. Pick and use them in your favorite dish. They're delicious!
