  • 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.

North Spore is based out of Westbrook and specializes in fresh mushroom cultivation as well as producing “mushroom spawn” for home growers and mushroom farms.
These classes are a great time to learn and ask all of your mushroom questions!
