Grow Your Own Gourmet Mushrooms

Shiitake Mushroom Block

As the beautiful spring sun begins to awaken our gardens ’tis the season to start growing your own gourmet mushrooms. It’s not as hard as you’d think!

Start with a mushroom block. It’s a super easy way to keep yourself stocked up on delicious mushrooms throughout the year. The blocks come pre “seeded” and just need to be kept moist and cool. And, if properly cared for, each block can produce 3 to 4 crops.

The mushroom blocks, supplied by Western Biologicals Ltd. here in BC, will be available by the end of February. Email to reserve yours, instructions included. Last season’s sold out quickly, so order early!

Oyster Mushroom Block

Shiitake and Oyster blocks are available for $15 each with $1 from each block going to support VanGrow, the Vancouver backyard garden growing club.

Oh, and if you can’t get to mushrooms, they will come to you.

Bicycle delivery is available for an additional $2 if you live within the delivery area (west of Main St., north of 41st Ave, and downtown Vancouver). Map

    Hi there! I’d love to purchase one or two of your mushroom blocks. I live at Oak and 16th, and I’m part of the 16 Oaks garden group.

    Cheers! Chris.

    Hi Chris,
    You’ll need to contact Stephanie directly, she’s the mushroom link, I’m just letting everyone know. I think the oyster blocks are all gone, better contact her quick to reserve.

    Looking forward to getting back into the garden, see you there!
