Semi-Commercial Gourmet Mushroom Cultivation Courses

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.

Currency: South African Rand ZAR for EFT payments, no hidden costs applicable. This is the preferred cost effective payment option for South Africans. To access the bank detail, please scroll down past the card option payment sections.

EURO for PayPal, debit or credit card payments. Additional standard card and / or exchange rate costs might be applicable. Make a convenient electronic payment with either your credit or debit card using the safe and secure PayPal payment gateway. Please note that a PayPal account is NOT a prerequisite to the above-mentioned card payments.

Cape Town course times are from 9h00 to 13h00 (half days).
Johannesburg / Durban / Port Elizabeth / East London course times are from 9h00 to 17h00 (full days).
