We offer a small business course twice a year. It is focussed around giving you the skills to turn readily available ‘waste’ products into a profitable enterprise without chemical fertilisers or toxic sprays and have a mulch or compost to use or sell at the end! The advanced course covers how raw materials are converted and custom-matched into long-life substrates suitable for selling as mushroom kits or used as part of a modern growing business.

You can set everything up, grow and sell in under 4 weeks! Growing fungi as a business offers low input costs and high profit margins. Your study is based on a 6m x 2.2m growing area — the size of a shipping container, but almost any spare area can be quickly set up to grow edible fungi following the straight forward, low cost, course directions.

Start with oyster mushrooms — learn the techniques, develop your market, then start another variety. The beginners course covers Oyster, Shiitake and Field mushrooms. Topics covered include:

  • How to set up a growing area
  • How to prepare the materials and ingredients to grow
  • How to care for your fungi and maximise production
  • How to harvest and store the final product for sale

The course is based on a non-chemical approach. Oyster and shiitake use no manure. Production is smell free!

Learn now, grow at your pace: run a trial at market, restaurants, shops or sell at your gate.
