Whenever I discover a really great find, I have to share it with my readers. That's definitely the case with Foodiacs -- the newest online community for foodies -- and their partnership with Back to the Roots. Currently Foodiacs is running a Grow Your Own Mushroom Garden 3 Box Special for $40 that's shipped directly to your home. Whether you love gourmet cooking and would just like to really get some locally grown produce or you have kids and you want to do something fun, educational and healthy together, this garden in a box that produces up to one and a half pounds of tasty, nutritious pearl oyster mushrooms is just the thing. No green thumb is needed, all you do is follow the easy directions this comes with.
Would be mushroom growers can always buy this growing set, as well as several other products, direct from Back to the Roots at the regular price of $19.95/box. But, if you purchase two mushroom garden boxes through the Foodiacs site up until 11:59 am EST on September 20, you'll receive a third box and classroom curriculum to be donated to the school of your choice.
My own Back to the Roots garden box just arrived in the mail today. In fact the inner plastic bag filled with 100% coffee grounds growing medium and the beginnings of what I hope will be a bumper crop of tasty mushrooms is submerged in a bucket of cold water for 24 hours right now, as it says on the directions. Stay tuned to hear about the results of our first-time foray into mushroom growing -- We could be harvesting our first crop in less than 2 weeks.
