    If your question is where you can find spores, there are sites like this one http://www.sporebank.com/section.php?xSec=3&jssCart=848ee77e10fa1a56e0b57745b6fdadbf which will sell you spores suitable for growing food mushrooms.  You may also be able to obtain spores from fresh mushrooms at a farmers market or grocery store, from what I remember of 7th grade biology, the spores are under the cap.

    If you question is how can you make them grow, then take a look at these two websites.

    If you want to get scientific and go through a process of growing food mushrooms on petri dishes with ordered growth medium, you can try this route. http://www.ehow.com/how_5142560_grow-mushrooms-spores.html

    Or if you are looking to grow mushrooms in your backyard, try this website. http://attra.ncat.org/attra-pub/mushroom.html  They state that you will need to plant the spores on a log or other nutrient rich substrate and just wait.
