Join farmer Gary Crouch as he shows us his extensive farm and demonstrates his love of farming. Taste absolutely fresh mushrooms for perhaps the first time in your life.

Gary will show us the growth cycle of mushrooms, from the extensive preparation of the growth medium (not soil, but carefully prepared compost) to their maturation in beds in the growing rooms, to the harvest and distribution.

Mushrooms lose flavor quickly once they are harvested, as does any other produce. This is another meeup in our series designed to make San Diego County residents more aware of where their produce comes from and how to get the freshest, healthiest, and most tasty produce possible.

Join us!
