Oyster mushrooms are easy to grow at home!! We will teach you the basics of mushroom cultivation, tell you how to gather the necessary supplies like mushroom spawn, and send you home with your own bag of Oyster spawn in straw that will produce beautiful blooms of Oyster mushrooms in your kitchen.

These mushrooms have a mild flavor and are delicious in a stir-fry or soup. This workshop is a great value, and will set you on the path to harvesting mushrooms year-round in your own home!

Instructor Raymond Gallardo has specialized in home mushroom cultivation for more than 12 years. He learned tips and techniques from master growers to develop a tried and true method for growing in a home environment. He and his wife, Sarah, developed the first home cultivation workshop of its kind in the Bay Area, which they have now taught at several local farms (including last year at Veggielution) with wildly successful results.


Veggielution empowers youth and adults from diverse backgrounds to create a sustainable food system in San Jose. Our urban farm engages the community by providing access to healthy and local food, creating youth leadership opportunities, and developing creative solutions to social and environmental justice issues.

We are a nonprofit community farm seeking to create a sustainable food system in San Jose. We currently farm about 1 acre at Emma Prusch Park in East San Jose, with the possibility of expanding to up to 10 acres at the park. Our volunteer workdays, youth programs, sliding scale farmstand, and community workshops give people a chance to get their hands dirty growing veggies, and learn the importance of eating healthy food and knowing where it came from.
