How Mushrooms Are Changing The World

Save Food Miles

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.


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.

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.

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!


Yes. You can grow nearly any type of mushroom after this class, you can think of growing mushrooms as baking a cake once you know how to bake one you can usually figure out how to make most others. Though there are certainly some species that are more challenging than others, and some that have yet to be cultivated “out of the wild”.

Mycology is a relatively under-explored field and new discoveries are being made every day, maybe you will find a way to cultivate what was once thought to be impossible.

Due to the material preparation requirements for the class all sales are final. Rescheduling can be requested up to 7 days prior to your scheduled class to allow enough time for the slot to be filled.

As of the time of this writing Cambridge, Somerville, Northampton, and Easthampton.  Statewide decriminalization is expected to follow in the coming years.

Every ticket includes an all-in-one grow bag, one spore syringe, and a 25% discount on any additional supplies purchased the day of your class.

Starting a farm or any other entrepreneurial endeavor is a challenging task, do not be mistaken this class is not an instant ticket to success.

As with any business much time, research, stress, and above all else luck is required for success, we can only guarantee that you will know how to grow mushrooms when you begin that journey.
