Basic Mycology: Mushroom Cultivation

This introductory mushroom cultivation workshop will explore the mushroom life cycle, types of mushrooms, basic cultivation skills and concerns, and three easy methods of cultivation. We will also take an in-depth look at considerations around myco-agriculture and myco-remediation (using mushrooms in agriculture and in cleaning up toxic waste).

This class is hands on and will teach three easy to use mushroom growing techniques. Participants will walk from this course with an Oyster kit, the knowledge of how to produce Oyster kits en masse, how to get further ‘mileage’ out of old mushroom kits by creating garden beds, and how to inoculate logs and stumps.

Come one, come all, and bring your friends! Freshly brewed Chaga mushroom tea will be available, but bring your own snacks.

Instructor Jared Urchek, the owner and operator of Boulder High Country Mushrooms, is a purveyor of fine, gourmet fungal food and medicine. Beginning his fungal studies through a basic permaculture course, he furthered his studies through Paul Stamets’ Mushroom Cultivation and Mycoremediation courses. With a fully functional mushroom laboratory and cultivation space located at the 63rd St Farm in Boulder, Colorado, he travels the land searching for the most delicious, most medicinal mushrooms to culture and offer back to his fellow humans.

No experience necessary. All materials provided. For participants 15 and older (participants under 15 are considered on a case-by-case basis), minimum of 4 participants, maximum of 10. Pre-registration is required. This workshop is offered by the Living Arts School, a folk school in Boulder County.

Cost: $65

    Excellent! Jared (our instructor .. I hope I recall his name correctly) was incredibly informative w/ all the info presented, had that 'true' nature of sharing his knowledge (he has the stuff that naturally born and gifted teachers possess, down to the spark that could almost be seen when speaking of his true passion that is mushrooms), his lecture and hands-on demo of our gifted bounty

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
