There are a number of mushroom-related courses out there. Here's why you should pick this one:
While there is no substitute for hands-on experience, this course is completely online. You can do it whereever you are and from the comfort of your own home.
Many mushroom courses are general, or offered in places outside of the course designers own location. But mushroom knowledge and information is often highly local. My course is focused on the Pacific Northwest, including British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon.
My course is affordable - only $15 for the base course including text lectures, photo references, and quiz questions.
