Alberta Mushroom Kits
Alberta is one of the most mushroom-rich provinces in Canada. It’s has many edible mushrooms, including morels, chanterelles, and oyster mushrooms.
If you’re interested in growing your own edible mushrooms in Alberta, a Folk Fungi mushroom kit is a great place to start.
With a kit, you’ll receive everything you need to grow gourmet mushrooms at home, including a growing medium (called a fruiting block) and a spray bottle. Spray the fruiting block with water every day, and you’ll have your harvest within 12 to 14 days.
Another great thing about growing with a mushroom kit is that you’ll get multiple harvests. After your first harvest, continue spraying the block, and you'll have more mushrooms in no time.
Mushrooms in Edmonton, AB
There are a lot of mushroom lovers in Edmonton, the capital city of Alberta.
For example, the Alberta Mycological Society is based in Edmonton. It’s a non-profit organization dedicated to the study and appreciation of mushrooms.
The society was founded in 1987 by a group of mushroom enthusiasts who wanted to share their knowledge with others. The society has grown steadily since its founding, with members in Edmonton, Calgary, and across the province.
The society has three main goals: to promote interest in mushrooms and other fungi; to educate people about mushrooms and their importance; and to provide an opportunity for people who share an interest in mushrooms to meet each other.
Mushrooms in Calgary, AB
Unlike Edmonton, Calgary doesn’t have a mycological society.
But still, there are lots of people in the city interested in mushrooms, especially on the growing side of things.
Calgary has a rich tradition of agriculture, and this extends to mushrooms as well. At local farmer’s markets, it’s typical to see growers selling a variety of mushrooms, from pink oysters to lion’s mane.
