Mushroom and fungi gardening November schedule

The class touches on the principles of mushroom and fungi gardening. The student has the opportunity to go through the process of planting mushroom, proper environment for maturing and harvesting the mushrooms. The student explores the different fungi, create a spore print, and explore ecology concepts by experimenting with mold and yeast growth and researching species of fungi—the nutritional value for growing and cooking different mushrooms and fungi discussed during preparation. The student cooks with a fungus " the Yeast" and makes bread. Mushroom recipes and a lesson plan are taken home for optional further study. I teach the importance of taking care of our environment, respecting our resources God has blessed us with, and how the lesson applies to the student's life. Classes designed and taught for age appropriateness and level of skill. Parents who have other children with them, may stay and use Knollwood facilities, including a study room, public bathroom, several places to picnic on the property, or Bedford town is only 5 miles away.
