Event Overview

Join us on the FOOD ROOF Farm for a workshop on successful cultivation of mushrooms for home or small-farm scale production. This course is an excellent primer for anyone thinking of working with mushrooms.

You will learn how to cultivate your own edible mushrooms in bags of mineral-enhanced sawdust “soil” by a seasoned cultivator. You'll go home with the information you need for a mushroom growing setup plus the knowledge to take your edible hobby further!

About the Educator:
J.T. Gelineau started Mushrooms Naturally part time in his small basement, and has grown it into a 3,000-square-foot warehouse in O’Fallon, Missouri. Mushrooms Naturally has grown to be one of the largest local suppliers of gourmet mushrooms to St. Louis restaurants in just three years.


Learn for a Cause:
All proceeds support the nonprofit Urban Harvest STL and their FOOD ROOF Farm project where they grow healthy, organic food for underserved communities in St Louis.

Urban Harvest STL empowers communities to cultivate equitable access to healthy, sustainably grown food and enhance biodiversity in cities. We envision vibrant cities where under-utilized spaces are transformed into productive urban farms which restore natural ecosystems and engage people of all ages to create stronger, more nourishing bonds with each other - and with nature.

We built the first rooftop farm in the St Louis, the FOOD ROOF Farm, atop a building downtown. The FOOD ROOF Farm is a unique, innovative project and a platform for urban agriculture and sustainable design. This project serves as a catalyst to improve overall health and well-being of our community.

    Presenter really knew his stuff and great to finally see the Food Roof in action. Wish the shade canopy had been replaced, but there was a breeze.
