Last week we posted an announcement regarding our January Spawn Sale. It's a great idea, because we have some aging spawn that needs to be sold... but we thought about a better way to execute this and came up with something a little different. We need a way to sell material that is moving on towards expiration, separate from our current fresh inventory... thing is, we will generally always have at least a few things that need to be sold this fashion. The solution... bargain deal pages for each of our spawn products! You'll now see a Bargain Overstock Deals Page in each of our major Grow Your Own Mushrooms product categories. Each of these pages will list the spawn or material available. Generally there will not be much listed, and pickings will be slim but when things are available, you'll be able to pick up perfectly good stuff for a good discount. Just use it soon, ok? These pages will be updated regularly as material flows through our facility, so new stuff may show up week to week. Be sure to check back regularly.

We're also kicking off our spring workshop series on Thursday February 6 with a time tested classic: Growing Oyster Mushrooms From Straw. This is a casual and fun, hands-on workshop. Each student will get the opportunity to make and take home their own fruiting oyster mushroom straw column. We'll talk a lot about growing mushrooms from straw, tour our demonstration garden, and have a good time! Cost is $35 per student and space is limited so please purchase tickets in advance. More workshops and classes will be posted soon, so be sure to check our Workshops and Events page for more info on what we're doing, and where we will be doing it.
