Growing Your Own Mushrooms with Michael Heim

Growing Your Own Mushrooms with Michael Heim


Join Michael Heim of Enso Farm and Forage to dive into the magical world of mushrooms! Participants will peer through the lens of how fungi interact in the forest ecosystem to learn the categories of mushrooms and which species are suitable for home cultivation. Each participant will receive their own growing kit.

Michael Heim is the founder of Enso Farm & Forage. He has lead forays for the Denver Botanic Gardens, Center for Integrative Botanical Studies, & the Boulder Living Arts School. He was even so fortunate to take a group of chefs from all over the United States on a culinary foray on behalf of the 2014 annual Chef’s Collaborative Summit. That same year he was invited to present at the annual Bioneers Conference at CU Boulder exploring the exciting topic of myco-remediation & what possibilities fungi has to offer for building soil integrity & it’s overall importance to successful ecosystems. In 2014 he produced and facilitated a 2-day medicinal mushroom workshop with Robert Rogers, author of The Fungal Pharmacy and revered herbalist based in Alberta Canada. In 2015 Michael studied lab technique and mushroom cultivation under Dr. Daniel Tura at Aloha Medicinals in Carson City, NV. He has taught mushroom cultivation classes for Boulder High Country Mushrooms, The Growhaus, & Cow Town Grangers. 2016 was his busiest year to date; leading identification workshops for the Denver Botanic Gardens, The Living Arts School, Hatch Lab, the Walking Mountain Science Center based in Avon, Colorado, & Swedish based Fjallraven Outdoor Gear.  If that isn’t enough, Michael has worked in the culinary field for over 16 years with many years of experience working with wild mushrooms in that context. He is a proud member of the Colorado Mycological Society.
