Free Webinar Series Will Teach Commercial Specialty Mushroom Production
The webinars will cover an introduction to mushrooms farming, including details on grow rooms, methods of cultivation and economics of mushroom growing. Through this webinars, you will explore how to develop: a mission goal and strategy, a production budget, and a mushroom crop plan for the 2020 growing season.
Join us on Wednesdays in February — the 5, 12 and 17 — from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. EST to start or expand your mushroom production.
Attendees of this online series can apply for ongoing mentoring as they develop and implement a business plan for growing mushrooms commercially. Ten growers will be accepted for intensive support from the project team in exchange for keeping track of labor and economic data while starting and operating their enterprise in the growing season of May to October, 2020. These growers will aim to grow and sell 30+ pounds of mushrooms per week through the growing season.
Note: Anyone can attend the webinars, but due to the course of funding, applications are restricted to Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C.
