Mushroom Cultivation

No natural ecosystem is complete without fungi. Fungi are the networkers of nutrients, the builders of soils, and the healers of plants. Throughout history humans have had deep connections with mushrooms in traditional cultures, providing us with food and medicine for thousands of years.

Being one of the world’s most important nutrient cyclers, fungi are some of the only known creatures to break down wood, making them essential components in any permaculture design system that aims to produce a yield while creating no waste. Fungi can achieve these goals by converting by-products of food production into valuable nutrition. Recent innovations, alongside resurgences of traditional methods of mushroom cultivation have made growing mushrooms for food and medicine easier than ever before in history.

As a certified Permaculture practitioner, David Satori also will run workshops on cultivating important fungi that do not produce mushrooms, such as mycorrhizal fungi, which are essential players in crop health for any organic gardener.

Throughout the year, we host various workshops on organic mushroom cultivation for culinary and medicinal use. No matter what your level of experience, there will be a workshop for your own goals and interests. Stay up to date with what workshops are coming up by signing up for our newsletter.


Did you know you can grow delicious oyster mushrooms on spent coffee grounds? This is an excellent project for beginners who want to turn waste into food at home.


Growing shiitake mushrooms on logs is one of the oldest cultivation techniques. Leftover logs from tree pruning operations are an excellent resource for mushroom growers.

Wood Chips

Got a spare shaded patch in your garden where plants don’t grow too well? With some fresh hardwood chips, you can turn any corner of your garden into a king stropharia mushroom bed.
