CULTIVATION

AND USES

 

Welcome to Tradd Cotter's MAGIC workshop, where we create an immersive and experiential approach to growing sacred mushrooms. Our various methods and growing media, from jars to monotubs, will help you learn the best techniques for creating a great yield. We will also be teaching you how to make agar plates and your own spore syringes, perpetual liquid cultures, and how to save cultures from contamination. Additionally, we will be discussing environmental factors that affect potency and how to improve yield and quality overall. Join us for an immersive workshop experience tailored to your needs.

OUTDOOR GOURMET AND MEDICINAL  MUSHROOM CULTIVATION

Looking to learn a new type of cultivation technique in a beautiful, outdoor setting? Join me for my workshop and lecture series, where I cover a variety of outdoor cultivation techniques, including wood chip cultivation on logs, stumps and rafts. My goal is to help attendees maximize their yields, while also making the most of wooded areas. By the end of my seminar, you'll receive seasonal instructions and have a firm grasp on how to create and tend to your own crop!

LABORATORY MUSHROOM TECHNIQUES

I have spent years refining my skills and developing techniques for cultivating mushrooms at home, and now I'm offering lectures and workshops to teach others to do the same. In our courses, you'll learn everything you need to know to get started, including laboratory and tissue culture techniques, designing laminar flow hoods for home use, pouring agar plates, agar transfers, grain preparation, and much more. We will cover all aspects of mushroom cultivation, from starting your first batch to expanding your operation.

MYCOREMEDIATION OF CONTAMINATED SOIL AND WATER

 

At this class, you will learn about the incredible potential of mushrooms for soil and water decontamination. I share media expansion techniques and species selection guidelines, providing you with a comprehensive understanding of the procedure. Together we will create bench trials for field trial applications. This class is perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about the intersection of environmental science and agriculture. As a participant, you will leave with newly gained knowledge, better understanding of the techniques, and a deepened appreciation of the power of mycelium.

MUSHROOM IDENTIFICATION AND FOOD SAFETY CERTIFICATIONS

Are you interested in learning about mushroom identification and food safety? Look no further than our one-day workshop led by Tradd Cotter, the founder of North America's first multi-state mushroom food safety program. Our interactive classes will teach you everything you need to know about identifying and consuming edible mushrooms, as well as precautions to take when consuming wild mushrooms. Our program is FDA audited and approved by every state that reviews it, so you can trust that you'll be receiving quality education. Plus, you can opt to take a certification exam upon completion of the class for a 5-year selling license. Enroll now to expand your knowledge!

MEDICINAL MUSHROOMS AND EXTRACTIONS

Medicinal mushrooms have been used for thousands of years to boost immunity and treat a variety of ailments. As a leading expert in mycology, I have spent decades researching the most effective ways to extract and formulate the healing properties of mushrooms. My experience has taught me that getting the right amount and quality of medicinal compounds from mushrooms requires specific math training and a deep understanding of how these organisms work. At my lectures and workshops, I share my knowledge of mushroom extraction and formulation with attendees, empowering them with the tools they need to get the most out of these amazing organisms.
