SOUTHERN AND EAST AFRICA
VIRTUAL REAL-TIME INTERACTIVE WEB-BASED COURSES

Gauteng, North West, Free State, Western, Eastern and Northern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga and Limpopo Provinces and other Southern and East African Countries

Semi-Commercial Gourmet Mushroom Cultivation

The following three options are available:

  1. Substrate Design
  2. Mushroom Cultivation
  3. Substrate Design + Mushroom Cultivation

Focus will be on shiitake bag cultivation, which is a bit more challenging and complicated as you would probably need facilities to cool down. Unless you want to follow the traditional shiitake log cultivation method. Shiitake is sought after, in both fresh and dried form.

The entire range of oyster mushroom species will also be discussed, some of which are cultivated at room temperature. Unless cultivating the king oyster or other winter oyster strains, there is no need to have expensive structures or complicated climate control systems.

Virtual real-time interactive web-based course participants should be available from 09h00 to 13h00 on the relevant course day(s), allowing sufficient time for an introduction, a 30 minute halftime break and a wrap-up session. The Academy is based in the SAST/CAT (Cape Town) = GMT/UTC+2 time zone.
