  1. Thanks for the mushroom info. I would like to know more. Your workshops and training for the year 2019. Cost of training. Duration and any helpful details. My key interest is to learn how to grow Shiitake mushrooms and Agaricus.

    • Dear Christopher
      Always a very good question, a few suggestions for selling are:
      * farmer’s markets
      * local restaurants
      * shops such as Spar
      * neighbors.
      Kind regards
      Neil

  2. I would like to grow mushrooms especially the oysters but I do not know how to start and where to get the starter kit

  3. Hello
    We named our pre-school MagicK Mushroom Montessori School. That was 10 years ago! Now, for our 10th birthday I would like to grow real magic mushrooms and thread them into a necklace to be worn at our party. We have had some really strange comments over the years and I would like to see if any parent actually recognises a real magic mushroom.
    Where can I get a growing kit and some Golden Teacher spores to grow enough for my prank?

    • Hi Jenny – How original!! Unfortunately it is illegal to grow magic mushrooms so we can’t help you out. But I can supply you a special kit with pink oyster mushrooms if you are interested?
