The Life Cycle of Fungi - A Guide for Beginners

In this article, we will explore everything you need to know about the lifecycle of fungi- from their different stages to examples of each type!
Mushrooms. Mean. Money.
The global gourmet mushroom market is expected to grow 9% annually over the next five years. However, there are still few farms in New England area which means that Alums can take advantage of this demand with their expertise about how best to cultivate these delicious fungi!
Save Food Miles
Next time you're wondering why your food tastes so much better than what they serve at restaurants, it could be because the ingredients have been grown locally. The average distance an American's meal travels before being served is 1500 miles! This means that only those with sturdy enough foundations can survive such long commutes and still provide us delicious flavors in return; but by growing our produce close to home we ensure availability for everyone regardless of their location or preferences which creates new options otherwise impossible.
Food And Medicine Security
Modern Mycologist strives to empower people with the knowledge and skills necessary for agricultural innovation. The effects of climate change have increased food production needs, but traditional methods are becoming less effective as we head into an era where it will be difficult or impossible maintain them without significant changes in how society operates on a global scale
We must adapt!
Mushrooms are one of nature's most efficient recyclers.  Some mushrooms even have the ability to break down complex pollutants like oil and plastic. This makes them an important tool in the fight against pollution and climate change.  While mushrooms are often associated with dark, damp places, they can actually be found all over the world. In fact, there are an estimated 1.5 million species of fungi, with new ones being discovered all the time.
Gourmet Mushrooms Are Delicious & Nutritious
Mushrooms are a great source of protein and offer many health benefits. They're low in calories, high in nutrients like fiber that help keep you feeling fuller for longer than most foods on the market! By now everyone knows how good these little guys taste so it's no surprise more people want them around their diet or as an addition to existing meals - but did you know there is even evidence showing they can lower blood pressure? And boost our immune system too?!

Growing Mushrooms Is Fun!
Growing mushrooms is like having a pet! You get to care for and guide your fungus through its life cycle. Plus, you can share them with friends or family members--growing together creates memories that last forever (and maybe some pretty amazing dishes too)!
Enough For You, Your Family & Friends Forever
Mushrooms Require Very Little Space

A 4'x4'x6' area can produce ~1,200 LBs of fresh mushrooms per year.  Mushrooms also require very little water relative to other foods.  With food costs forever rising mushrooms are a great way to save money and eat healthy.

Feeling Confident!
“Before I took Modern Mycologist’s mushroom growing class I had never grown anything and was scared to try.  My partner convinced me to give it a shot and I am so glad that I did!  The instructor was very helpful and made sure even a total beginner like me didn’t get lost.  Two harvests later and I couldn’t be happier, I have more than I need and have started gifting to friends!”

Not a Doubter Anymore!

“Our family is vegan and with the rising food costs it is becoming difficult to afford adequate sources of protein.  After learning to grow mushrooms we have a never ending supply right in the kitchen, we just cut off what we need when we need it.  Our kids have been the biggest fans, they are learning to grow now too!”

Works Well For My Problem

“Before I attended this class I was unsuccessful in gaining entry to a psilocybin clinical trial to treat my depression.  I had heard so many success stories but did not know anyone who grew and did not trust buying black market.  This class helped me secure my own supply and the results have been incredible!  I cannot recommend learning to grow enough.”

- David S.
