Oyster Mushrooms by Urban Homesteader VT

Learn how to grow oyster mushrooms in your home or yard and bring home an inoculated bag that will be ready to fruit just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. You’ll learn how to safely pasteurize straw, cleanly inoculate mycelial spawn, maintain growing conditions, and harvest your mushrooms.

Design. Build. Grow. Learn.

Urban Homesteader VT is based in Burlington, Vermont and works to help people transform yards into small-scale food-producing homesteads to provide for home and community.

Currently serving Chittenden County and  surrounding towns, we offer design and installation of raised beds, rain barrels, chicken coops, custom compost bins, veggie & herb gardens, fruit tree & berry groves – complete backyard homesteads!

Start Small. Think Big.

We can’t wait to help you create your own backyard homestead. However, we understand the importance of “seedling” steps.  So, we offer a series of individual services that you can mix and match to get going.

Rain Barrels

for rain water harvesting to use in your gardens
