Grow Edible Mushrooms with Leftovers Edit Cancel Copy Export Tell a friend Share All members can edit Saturday, October 5,[masked]:00 PM to 3:00 PM Center for Living Peace 4139 Campus Drive, Irvine, CA (edit map) Transform leftover coffee grinds into delicious oyster mushrooms. This workshop will teach an intro to the fungal kingdom, how to prepare, mix, and pack a mushroom kit. How can we reduce the amount of waste we send to the landfill? How can we grow a diversity of food ourselves, at our own home? We can do both at the same time. There’s no magic involved here, just simple biology. In this workshop, we will learn how to transform waste into food. Grow your own delicious oyster mushrooms using leftover coffee grounds, some water, and an introduced inoculated grain spawn in the form of a white, web-like mycelium. Learn about the fascinating fungal kingdom world, the tools, materials, and how to prepare and maintain a mushroom growing kit. Fun and edible! By participating in this program you are supporting The Ecology Center’s Backyard Skills workshops, which encourage people to be part of the solution by teaching them the building blocks to have a sustainable culture.

      Hello Jo-- sure! We tend to have a class with The Ecology Center every month, with a different topic each time. The next class topic is creating your own journal (Saturday, Nov. 2), followed by herbal salves and tinctures (Saturday, Dec. 7)!

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.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
