Grow Mushrooms @mushroomscanada @BTTRVentures

I'm pretty sure friends and family are growing tired of my almost daily Facebook updates on my Grow Your Own Mushrooms! We can't help it! My four year old and I are so excited!  I'm so shocked at how quickly our oyster mushrooms are growing! It's amazing!

Grow Mushrooms! Your very own mushrooms!

Attendees at the Food Bloggers of Canada were all given a Grow Your Own Mushroom Kit. I've always been interested in how mushrooms grow and on our farm (in our hardwood forest), we have mushrooms like morels. Seeing the mushrooms grow each day is incredible though! In just 10 days, you can harvest the mushrooms!

Grow mushrooms with your kids in 3 steps! Open, mist, harvest! 

The kit from Back to the Roots serves as a great science experiment for kids. My four year old waters her mushrooms every day and takes not of the changes. She is looking forward to harvesting them. She's only in Junior Kindergarten, but she describes her mushrooms to friends and family as being "an incredible living organism". I love that! What I also love is that Little One gets to see the growing process and is a part of seeing her food from the beginning to on her plate. This is something I think is very important for children to realize and be familiar with.

Mmm...just thinking of all the delicious recipes to make with our mushrooms!

We're posting this photo to the Back on the Roots Facebook page.

If you post a photo of your fully grown mushrooms from the kit, Back to the Roots will donate a kit and sustainability curriculum to an elementary classroom of your choice!
