As an urban farm, Sweet Peas has a lot of expertise in making the most of their space. Amazingly, it only takes a small pile of the right kind of wood to produce a whole crop of Shiitake mushrooms for you to cook yourself or share with your friends. This is a super low-effort way to try growing some interesting food of your own or adding something you grew yourself to the dishes you might normally prepare. First learn the ins and outs of inoculation and then try it yourself!

With multiple ticket options, you can choose whether you simply want to learn more about growing mushrooms and then get started when you’re ready or for a slightly higher ticket you can take some logs of your own home with you to get started.
