Spring has Spawned: Getting Your Garden Ready for Mushroom Cultivation Webinar

February 25, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

| Free – $10

We offer our program fee on a sliding scale ($0-10)

Every gardener in America should be growing mushrooms!

If upgrading your garden this year sounds fun, join Louis Giller for an informative presentation. He will cover: Why one should garden with mushrooms including culinary and ecological benefits; basic fungal biology; growing techniques, tools and materials needed as well as the appropriate mushroom species to use; best times to prepare, plant, and expect harvests; how to keep the garden healthy throughout the season.


  • Louis Giller has spent about 12 years studying, growing, foraging, and most importantly eating mushrooms. His mycological journey began at the University of Denver where he studied environmental science and conducted oyster mushroom research inspired by MycoCelebrity Paul Stamets. He joined North Spore about 5 years ago where he primarily works on customer service, education, and community outreach.

Registration is required – Participants will receive the Zoom information after registering for this event.
