Mushroom growing has been a fun adventure for my kids ever since we got a kit at Christmas.
I figured it'd be a great activity for my gardening-loving Girl Scout troop. We were blessed to receive a donation of mushroom growing kits from Back to the Roots. I started a demo one, which went like gangbusters.
Today, as I went to divide up the packages and prep the sample for next week's gardening night, I realized that the others did as well!
It is a really cool example of seeing how mushrooms develop; it's just disappointing the girls won't get to enjoy it! They're right -- truly no green thumb is required! ;-)
Back To The Roots Mushroom Kits are actually pretty affordable experiments in gardening - they retail for about $20 on Amazon.
