Growing your own mushroom with Ellen

Ellen from Simple Sustainability came to show us how to grow your own mushroom with substrate made of recycled paper kitty litter and the spent substrate from an old mushroom kit.  Instead of composting the spent mushroom kit substrate, she has taught us how to give it new life while at the same time getting more mushrooms without spending on buying a new kit.

At the end of the talk, we got a bag of mushroom substrate each, so we can wait and pace floor with much anxiety 🙂  We were also treated to some delicious mushroom risotto, yum!  Please find the info that was handed out at the talk here.  Remember to wear gloves when mixing the lime into the substrate.  If you have any questions, you can get in touch with Ellen.
