Locals learn how to grow mushrooms right in their backyards

ARCATA – The Humboldt County is well known for growing local produce and also for having lots of trees. Today some community members got to put those two together in learning out to grow their own mushrooms.

The Humboldt based business, Fungaia Farms, put on a workshop today where people could come in and learn about all the different types of mushrooms that can be grown right in their back yards. The business has been around since 2011 and focuses mostly on mushroom grow kits and supplies but does a few workshops every year.
