    Yes, there is off street parking available along 26th Ave. SW.

    We're excited that the workshop is almost here! Everyone, wear layers and bring rain gear. We'll be inside for PowerPoint portion and under cover for the log inoculation, but will need to walk between the areas.

    Ah mushroom tuition costs is too steep for both me and my guest, but all you fun-guys and gals have a great time spreading mycelium.
    The good news is that now there is room for 2 other folks from the waiit-list.

    Bring a lunch and gloves?

    March 21, 2013

    • Kimberly L.

      Yes, please bring your own garden gloves and sack lunch/drink. Also, wear clothes and shoes that are weather appropriate and can get dirty since inoculation portion of workshop will be outside.

    • Christopher C.

      also, clothes you can get hot wax dripped on it, more messy than dirt.
