“Willie Crosby was the perfect teacher for our Home Mushroom Cultivation class. I saw him stumped only once about an obscure mushroom name. Literally every other question that 20(ish) students threw at him throughout three full sessions was met with answers that were, at once, accessible to a novice like me yet detailed enough to inform more experienced mushroom growers.​” Larry, Student Dec 2020

“I received the course and have already started watching and learning!!!! You truly are a great teacher and coach.” Margie, Student June 2020

” I am so grateful that we have found you as a resource! I was very impressed with you as an educator. You were very thoughtful about the information you rolled out so that it did not seem overwhelming. I am a teacher and I know great teaching when I see it!” Marian, Student April 2020

Home Mushroom Cultivation

***** did a great job of explaining the process of growing mushrooms at home, with hints at cultivating as a business. Well worth the money to learn the ins and outs, what to do and what NOT to do! If you're thinking about growing mushrooms or have purchased a kit to grow, take the course! You'll be happy you did and you'll end up with a better harvest!

First time buyer and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the grow kit. So simple to use and the yield from the first flush was amazing. I’d upload pics of I could. I would highly recommend without reservation.
