Workshop Replay! Unlocking the Power of Cordyceps: How to Grow, Harvest, and Utilize this Superfood with William Padilla-Brown

Date and Time
This is an online Zoom webinar event.

Join “Permaculture Papi,” William Padilla-Brown, and learn everything you need to know about cultivating your own cordyceps so that you can harvest your own highly prized fungus.


Cordyceps is one of the most potent superfoods on the planet. A rare and mysterious mushroom, Cordyceps has been used throughout China, Tibet, and Nepal for its healing properties. This fascinating “zombie fungus” is known for its ability to boost energy, improve libido and increase cognitive function—giving it a reputation for anti-fatigue properties. 

Cordyceps sinensis, the species used for centuries, grows on caterpillars and has become extremely expensive for those seeking its healing properties. The alternative, Cordyceps militaris, contains up to 90% more cordycepin (the active constituent) when compared with Cordyceps sinensis.

Grow your own Cordyceps militaris with 2 big advantages:

  1. No insects are needed to grow it – Cordyceps militaris grows in a sterile medium.
  2. It’s a super potent species – Cordyceps militaris produces the health-supporting compound cordycepin (3′-deoxyadenosine) in much higher amounts than Cordyceps sinensis. 

Join “Permaculture Papi,” William Padilla-Brown, author of the Cordyceps Cultivation Handbook, and learn everything you need to know about cultivating your own cordyceps so that you can harvest your own highly prized fungus.

In this 5-hour workshop, you will learn:

????How to grow your own cordyceps in your Instant Pot – no bugs needed!

????When to harvest them for maximum anti-aging and immunity-boosting compounds

????How to craft your own cordyceps medicine

The curious and adventurous will be surprised and delighted by the results!
