How to Grow Organic Mushrooms at Home this Winter

Back to the Roots Organic Mushroom Grow Kits have everything you need to grow and harvest your own mushrooms indoors!

Of course mushrooms normally grow outside. How exciting as it may sound to hike through the woods to harvest your own mushrooms, it can be very dangerous. Many poisonous mushrooms look similar to edible mushrooms but could have deadly consequences. Play it safe with these mushroom grow kits from Michigan.

With easy instructions, this is a great family fun activity to do together this winter. Plus, you can even download free curriculum to teach kids the science behind mushrooms. 

Your kids will enjoy watering and misting down the mushrooms every day. Plus, kids that help grow vegetables are 5X more likely to eat and try new vegetables compared with families that don’t home garden. When you get your child involved in growing and cooking their own food, their diets will improve.  The one thing that I’m happy my husband and I did from the beginning with our children is introduce new foods and garden with them. Now, they will eat or at least try any food, no matter how exotic! Kits like this grow kit is the perfect way to introduce gardening to your family too.

This is the mushroom substrate out of the box. You’ll want to cut it open, scratch the surface to activate, and soak in water.

Next, place in an area with indirect sunlight. This is the stage we are currently at and can’t wait to see and taste our mushrooms in 10 days!

Just open, spray daily with the included mister, and in 10 days you’ll be harvesting your own mushrooms right out of the box!  Everything is 100% organic and Non-GMO so you’ll feel good and safe feeding your family these mushrooms. If you need inspiration on how to cook your freshly grown mushrooms, check out these recipes.

After you grow your mushrooms, take a picture and upload to social media with #GrowOneGiveOne and Back to the Roots will donate a kit to an elementary school classroom of YOUR choice! How cool is that?!

If you are afraid you don’t have a green thumb, no worries. If your kit doesn’t grow, they will replace it free of charge.

I love how Back to the Roots is reconnecting people to the food they eat. Getting a hands-on experience with growing your own food can be life changing.  Check out all their kits here including cheery tomato, shishito pepper, microgreens, and herbs like basil, mint & cilantro.
