One of my signature children’s cooking classes is called “Eat Your Own Biosphere.” It’s a fun, engaging class for kids and their families that teaches some science that surrounds food. Today, with the help of mail order from Far West Fungi Company in the San Francisco Bay Area, it is possible to take the gardening portion of my class and actually grow your very own mushrooms at home – right before your eyes! The kids will be astonished!
Choosing which species of farmed mushrooms to grow at home starts with picking the kind of mushroom you would like to eat. Some popular choices when growing mushrooms at home are:
- flavorful and highly prized Shiitake mushrooms
- oyster mushrooms
Both varieties are perfect for pasta sauce and popular with kids. Click here to purchase at-home growing kits from East West Fungi Farms!
