Learn to grow mushrooms...

Canada Mushroom Growing Workshop is the first of its kind!  Teaching you the best techniques for growing personal gourmet mushrooms...THE POOR BOYS WAY!

Learn from the poor boy 'Master Grower' himself...

"I have always been fascinated with growing mushrooms.  But, unlike you, I had no one to teach me the ends-and-outs of indoor/outdoor mushroom growing.  So I went on a mission to learn to grow mushrooms inside my once small apartment.  I wasn't out to create some grandeur in-home business but to learn to grow enough to feed my family and maybe a few friends along the way.  Let me be the first to tell you that I screwed-up soooo many times!  Things I thought would be GREAT wound up being a complete disaster and a waist of time.

Well, 20 years later I can grow mushroom from recycled material, sawdust, straw and from what most people consider to be trash!  Grow Oyster mushrooms off of recycled coffee/drink trays.  I can take a handful of bird seed and grow 50 lbs of mushrooms if I wanted.  I can go to the store and pick out some tasty mushrooms and clone them before sautéing for our dinner.

I am going to save you years of screw-ups and hair pulling.  Save you wasted time and money.  I will teach you the absolute poorest way to grow mushrooms...for years to come!

I am offering Summer courses starting the summer of 2011...

Note:  So you get the most out of the workshops we are only allowing 5 people per workshop.  So if you have a friend joining you...join together!
