Tuscany Highlands Oyster Mushroom Cultivation Online Training Program [Everything You Need to Know]

I’ve mentioned in my previous blog post that “the month of May has been nothing but awesome”. Well, aside from getting featured on two big-time online publications (Wiki.EzVid.com and Connected Women), this is also the month that our Oyster Mushroom Cultivation Online Training Program has begun to soar! This is aside from the fact that we have been selling fresh mushroom harvests, fruiting bags, spawns, starter kits, Musiga and other mushroom products.

But first things first. Let’s talk about Tuscany Highlands’ Oyster Mushroom Cultivation Online Training Program. I’ll start with a bit of an overview and how we have progressed from doing hands-on during pre-Covid times to going online after the pandemic was announced. Then at the end of this blog post, I’ll give you the details of our Oyster Mushroom Online Training Program. So if any of you reading this would want to be oyster mushroom growers in the near future, you may do so even if you’re just at the comforts of your own home.

 

OVERVIEW

I think we are on the right track. Mahal and I pivoted the direction of our Tuscany Highlands business just in time during this pandemic. I guess not so many people in our industry (mushroom industry) has thought of, or acted upon, going online. I’ve been thinking about it even before this pandemic came into our lives because after all, I’m a digital nomad. I feel like anything online under the sun is in the realm of my world. It just so happened that when the pandemic hit, it also affected my mental and emotional health the way it affected many of us. They call what we’re feeling “collective grief” because life will never be the same again and we are all grieving about that in our own way, in this “new normal” we’re now living in. I needed to take care of my well-being first and the well-being of my family at that time. I was on “survival mode” when it happened. But as soon as I felt good again, I hit the ground running in terms of our mushroom business. And so I think, to the best of my knowledge, we at Tuscany Highlands were the first to release an online training program for oyster mushroom cultivation just like what one of our trainees said:

BEFORE WE WERE ONLINE, WE WERE HANDS-ON FIRST

As you may know, if you’ve been following me for some time now, we’ve only started our Oyster Mushroom Cultivation Hands-On Training Program last October 2019 with only a handful of trainees on board per batch, mostly from Cagayan de Oro and other parts of Northern Mindanao.

Then around January – February, we were already getting around 15-18 trainees per session.

Before the pandemic hit, we’ve already registered around 20 paid trainees, more than what we’ve envisioned per training session. The market is ready and we were prepared for them as well. Then Covid-19 came about and all live events were stopped.

TUSCANY HIGHLANDS MUSHROOM TRAINING WENT ONLINE

Now with our online training program, our registered trainees are increasing and continue to increase with people from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao joining our online training program!

Tuscany Highlands Online Mushroom Trainees

It’s true that there are existing free videos on Youtube about basic oyster mushroom cultivation. I’ve seen them too. They’re informative, yes.  But in my honest opinion, the video lessons Mahal and I prepared for our trainees are way more detailed, more comprehensive, and intensive, and combined with all the knowledge that Mahal garnered from his training with BPI (Bureau of Plant Industry) and Farm Business School under the Department of Agriculture, plus all our experiences in the mushroom farm business since 2017, our online training at Tuscany Highlands is touted to be one of the best and our trainees can really hit the ground running with setting up their own mushroom growing areas either for personal consumption, or building their own mushroom farms for business purposes as soon as they finish the course. In fact, some of them have gone on to become oyster mushroom growers now!

Moreover, they get lifetime support from us for as long as we can communicate with our trainees via Facebook, text, or call. We are also constantly adding units and lessons to our online training program to keep abreast of related topics that will benefit our trainees. We consider our trainees part of our growing family of Tuscany Highlands Oyster Mushroom Growers and we want them all to succeed, with Mahal — Engr. Hanz Villanueva, leading the way.

We plan to release another training program using English as the language of instruction because we’ve also been getting inquiries from foreigners who want to join our online training program. So excited to expand our market!
