Shiitake Mushroom Inoculation Workshop

Key questions for growing specialty forest mushrooms are How When and Why to do so. The How includes several considerations including substrate trees (logs or woodchips, etc.), what kind and source of spawn to inoculate logs with, how to inoculate, and how to manage the inoculated logs before and after they begin fruiting (producing mushrooms). The When includes what time of year to commence logging, i.e. cut down live substrate trees, and then when to inoculate them. The Why has to do with what you expect to get out of mushroom growing. Hobby? Secondary income? Full time business? Come and learn with us as we enter our second year of the Cornell Research Study on shiitake mushroom production for small-scale diversified farms.
