Really amazing and helpful course with Darren. He’s a friendly and inspirational guy with a very deep knowledge of all aspects of fungus cultivation culture. If you want to get going on this hobby make him your first choice to learn all the skills and tips to save you time and money. 10/10. Gonna have a go myself now then most likely do his pro course in the coming months. Cheers dude.
