An example of feedback from teachers-
Hi....Anyway I want to grow the oyster the oyster mushrooms as we have before ... We have tried on straw on toilet rolls in dry fish tanks and hanging in the classroom and here we are again wanting to have a go . I might say we ate the results of our labours in omelettes! It was all very successful as you know . JD Auckland via email March 2010
The experiments were great and the mushrooms that we grew were enjoyed by all, we managed several big fry ups. The class really enjoyed the unit and I was surprised at how much they learned in a few short weeks. Thank you so much for making the experience that much richer.

I am the HOD biology ........Last year I bought your C.D. and oyster mushroom kits for yield, and the one where the mycelium grows on black paper in plastic bags. We used them for the Year 13 organism study. They were successful, as well as being interesting for the boys. I told them about the source so hope you received some orders from them.
This year I would like to buy a supply of your spawn-impregnated grain so we can run the black paper stimulation/inhibition practicals again.
