Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education. His practical handbook is in 8 languages and is called the MUSHROOM BIBLE: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/08/modern-mushroom-growing-2020-harvesting.html

P.J.C. Vedder on Mushroom Cultivation during Technology Transfer Seminar part 1

Starting off, with our gratitude towards Mushrooms Canada, for allowing us to use their video.

For all those that never met him in person, as an educator, see video below.
Written permission from Mushrooms Canada for using their video.
Already on April 13, 2020 husband Pieter did receive a reply to his request for being able to insert a link to videos produced by then Canadian Mushroom Growers' Association click for their FB Page.
WITH GRATITUDE for being allowed to use this video's link!
Don't you just LOVE their unique SLOGAN?!

1994 May 24 + 25 PIETER VEDDER: TALKING ABOUT MUSHROOMS Tape 1 of 2
Covering the importance of water during composting, casing and mushroom cultivation.
Readers and/or viewers, should realize, that such a Technology Transfer Seminar was done in a 2nd language for us. Always so for the impromptu, without paper or any note points. 
Also, answering any upcoming questions from the audience.
Try doing this, for hours on end...
You must thrive on a lot of knowledge and experience for being able to do this spontaneously, time and time again, and with the same enthusiasm as you did for the very first time!
That's me, in the video, looking on... We always got invited together, to such a Technology Transfer Seminar

  1. Hello Mariette, It looks like you and Pieter never had a chance to sit still--too many mushroom growers needed instruction. Here in Taiwan of course individuals cannot create compost, but there is a citywide program to bring compostibles when the garbage trucks come around every day, so things like vegetables peels are put to good use instead of creating more waste.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      This is not about composting your own vegetable and fruit peel waste, but about how to make the substrate (compost) to grow mushrooms on, in a commercial way.
      While living and working in Indonesia, they had up to 800 metric tons per day of compost production...
      Hugs,
      Mariette

      PS we do have our own compost bin in the yard, for composting vegetable peels and such!

    2. Hello again, From reading your blog filled with your and Pieter's expertise, I know there is a difference between generic compost and specialized mushroom compost and how it is created and employed. Mushrooms do not grow in compost the same way as do "regular" plants, so certainly special requirements are needed. --Jim

    3. That is very true Jim! Mushroom compost in the early days was on horse manure but there are not enough horse stables around for supplying enough of that. So they started using 'synthetic' compost from straw, sugar cane bagasse, rice straw etc. Mushrooms have a different function in the cycle of life as they are able to break down lignin. You often find mushrooms on decaying wood. Mushroom growers just mimic mother nature, what happens in nature in about half a year, they do in a very short cycle.

  2. Here in the UK people are encouraged to have a compost heap in their gardens.

    God bless.

    1. Dearest Victor,
      But that is aside from creating the substrate (compost) for commercial mushroom growing. We too have a compost bin in our garden for vegetable peels and such but that is just at a mini scale compared to the mushroom industry where many metric tons get produced daily.
      Hugs,

    1. Querida Antónia,
      Sí, mi Pieter siempre ha sido un tipo muy activo, pero seguro que disfruta de su retiro. Esto sólo está destinado a todos aquellos, en todo el mundo, junto con nuestro libro, para beneficiarse de consejos útiles y tales.
      Abrazos,

    1. Dearest Tamago,
      Guess it just comes with dedication and a lot of passion for what you do!
      Like you yourself, English has become our 'native' tongue in a way.
      Hugs,

    1. Dearest Kelleyn,
      That is not too far from us, a good 2.5 hours driving distance, depending where you are. We've been often to Roswell and also to Alpharetta, where we stayed at Hyatt Place and of course, the North Georgia Premium Outlets...
      Hugs,
      Mariette
