Feedback From Educators

“Hi... Anyway I want to grow the oyster mushrooms as we have before... We have tried on straw, on toilet rolls, in dry fish tanks and hanging in the classroom and here we are again wanting to have a go. I might say we ate the results of our labours in omelettes! It was all very successful as you know.”

“The experiments were great and the mushrooms that we grew were enjoyed by all, we managed several big fry ups. The class really enjoyed the unit and I was surprised at how much they learned in a few short weeks. Thank you so much for making the experience that much richer.”

“I am the H.O.D. biology... Last year I bought your CD and oyster mushroom kits for yield, and the one where the mycelium grows on black paper in plastic bags. We used them for the Year 13 organism study. They were successful, as well as being interesting for the boys. I told them about the source so hope you received some orders from them. This year I would like to buy a supply of your spawn-impregnated grain so we can run the black paper stimulation/inhibition practicals again.”

“If you want to encourage learning and understanding of fungi growth and development in your students I would recommend teachers of any level, whether primary, secondary or tertiary get in touch with Tim at Mushroom Gourmet. It’s a worthwhile learning experience for all, with the benefits of a meal at the end of it!”
