Our F.E.E. Immersive Training:

Our Trainings are for those ready to immerse themselves in fungal culture! Three long intensive days (w/ breaks for lunch and dinner) where we cover what it takes to work with fungi and in turn, cultivate them. The small class size (no more than 30 participants) ensures everyone is addressed, and encourages communication between participants. We will go through a series of presentations, and hands-on workshops. We will be both inside and outside our lab/farm and local Permaculture Homesteads. We will get a chance to work in an Urban style clean room lab, and fruiting facility. Depending on the time of year and weather, we may be inside the whole time.
