Course: Mushroom Cultivation & Application
This September, SixTwelve is bringing Peter McCoy to OKC for a 20-hour immersion in the world of mushroom growing. Designed for the beginner as well as the experienced grower, this course is one of the most up-to-date and accessible courses of its kind, all taught by a leader in the applied mycology field. Founded on the principles of Radical Mycology, this course will teach you not only the skills of fruiting mushrooms and growing mycelium (spawn), but also how to integrate fungi into any regenerative urban or rural lifestyle. Using an easy to follow format and an emphasis on practices that minimize waste, cost, and complexity, this class will leave you empowered to start cultivating mushrooms anywhere and on any budget.
Throughout the Course, Peter will explain his personal approach to cultivating fungi for food, medicine, and soil health. Through a variety of hands-on activities and in-depth explorations of fungal biology and ecology, you will learn both the how of cultivation and—more importantly—the why behind its many practices. With this combination of concepts and skills covered, you will leave this course equipped with effective growing protocols as well as the design principles needed to adapt any mushroom cultivation project to fit your needs.
Whether you want to grow your own nutrient-dense mushrooms for food or as a potent natural medicine, or you plan to start a mushroom-based business, this course will cover the core skills you need to hit the ground running.
