Mushroom Production-Sustainable Agriculture

Lion’s Mane, Oyster, Shitake and Chestnut. These are some of the consumable mushrooms in production at HENOSIS near Nashville. Mushroom cultivation is quite different from growing garden vegetables. We follow the process from substrate mix to harvest and learn how truly sustainable it is.

Gardener Extras

  1. Wheat bran is an excellent nutrient supplement for mushroom block substrate to produce higher yields. Percentages vary for each species. 15-20% by total weight is average.
  2. Grain spawn is made from sterilized grains that have been inoculated with a live mycelium culture. It contains a lot of energy for the mycelium to consume.
