What You Get: A Mushroom CSA share includes 1 mushroom grow kit per month from June-October. At $20 per kit, one share costs $100. Members of the 2020 Fungal Focus CSA learned to grow 5 different species of oyster mushrooms. Oyster mushrooms are ideal for beginners.
How You Get It: Kits will be pick-up from or delivered to your chosen location. They will be provided once per month, June through October. An email notification will be sent out when it is a mushroom CSA pickup week.
About The Kits: Each kit will come with a description of the species and directions for cultivation. Like plants, mushrooms have a seasonality. The species you grow will correspond with the temperature and time of year. Grow kits should be thought of as similar to vegetable seedlings: they all have the potential to grow and be bountiful, however, their fruitfulness will depend on the amount of care and attention they are given. Kits typically fruit 1-3 pounds.
All mushrooms should be cooked before eating. Overly mature, rotten, or old mushrooms should not be consumed.
