$ Mushroom Growing and Risotto Cooking- a Farm to Table evening [Lakeside]

Price $ 28/person prepaid, mushroom workshop only.

NOTE: This event requires pre-purchase of a ticket here or at Hurry and get the early bird discounted price today!

For a limited time we reduced the price. Grab your ticket before we change our mind. :-)

Mushroom workshop only (no food): $28/early bird!

Mushroom AND risotto workshop $39/early bird!

Join Mushroom expert Chris Young, owner of SoCal Shrooms & Closing the Loop, and risotto expert Claudia F, organizer of San Diego Permaculture. Learn to grow your own oyster mushroom and cook authentic Italian risotto with it. You will leave with a mushroom kit to grow at home, a tummy full of risotto, the ability to cook your next killer meal, and new friends.

(Picture taken by Stephanie Murphy. This is her grow kit from one of our workshops.)

All the food will be organic and gluten-free. Risotto is a typical Italian meal made with Arborio rice. Please specify in your order if you want vegan risotto. Yes, that can be done, and it's yummy!

Dinner will be held at Chris' farm - Closing the Loop Farms - in Lakeside. Bring your guitar or fiddle and throw us a song.

Come Grow (and eat) Permaculture with Us!

To hear more about Chris's dream/plan, listen to this fabulous Permaculture Voices podcast: 

Come spend the evening and be a part of a farm being built from the ground up. Chris' farm goes beyond organic and permaculture to a new, complete style of sustainability - closing the loop.

Buon appetito!

(Mushrooms Guru Chris Young, showing how big his Oyster mushrooms grew. Kind of like when you catch a fish).

Think it's too complicated to grow mushrooms? See Claudia's first attempt after Chris' class below.

Such a Zen experience. You'll be enlightened too.
