Planet Mushrooms was born from a desire to eat the freshest mushrooms possible. With our global food system, the freshest food is the food we grow at home. With a background in Chemical and Material Engineering, Planet Mushrooms founder, Chanchan Wang, wanted to bring the experience of mushroom growing to every home. She gained knowledge and hands-on experience in mushroom cultivation from her parents who are experts with more than 20 years of experience in China. She now combined her life experience and knowledge on chemical and material engineering to work on mushroom cultivation, mushroom based materials and remediation to make mushroom growing, and eating, a fresh, fun and healthy experience for the whole family.
Our mission at Planet Mushrooms is to make growing and eating fresh mushrooms a fun experience. Mushrooms are nutritious fungi that provide vitamins, protein and polysaccharides. Growing mushrooms is a complex process, which requires extensive experience and care. At Planet Mushrooms, we've taken on the science to produce robust Mushroom Home Grow Kit to satisfy the desires of growing your own fresh mushrooms year-round. The grow kits are ready to fruit. Most importantly, the varieties of mushrooms (Shiitake, Oyster, Shimeji, Enoki, Reishi and Turkey tail, etc.) we provide will satisfy every foodie’s cravings. To the best of our knowledge, we are the only company in Canada that produces mushroom grow kits with such a large variety. Our grow kits mimic the habitat of wild mushrooms and are free of fertilizer and pesticide.
