Video of the Week: Farming your own fungi

By Grace O'Manique on March 30, 2022


If you love the outdoors, then perhaps you also have an interest in the unique and wonderful world of mushrooms! There’s a lot to discover here in Ontario, where over 5,000 different kinds of fungi grow in nature—but did you know that you can also easily grow your own mushrooms to cook with at home?

If you missed the Ottawa Home and Garden Show this past weekend, plenty of great content is still available online, including this Farming Your Own Fungi presentation presented by Lee Valley Tools.

Join Emma the Urban Botanist and Deb Kelly, a local mycologist and mushroom expert from The Fungi Connection, to learn about a variety of edible mushrooms and how to harvest your own using a grow kit in this fun and informative presentation.
