    I can't make it this weekend. Can someone tell me what edible mushrooms grow best in western ma particularly in the berkshires? In my back yard there is mostly maples where I plan to give it a go. Is there a local commerical sourse of plug spawn or sadust spawn or mycelium? Thanks. Tim

      Hi Tim, I'm in the berkshires (well, VT, technically - about 1/4 mile over the state line) and I'll be at the workshop this weekend. If you're in the northern berkshire area I'd be happy to get together to share notes after if you like.

      That would be awesome. I am from Pittsfield. I could drive up some time.

    Hey Tim, there are a broad range of edible mushrooms that grow well in the berkshires. Mostly depends on the substrate you want to use. The three easiest to start with are oysters and shiitake on logs and Wine cap or Stropharia on woodchips. My company Fungi Ally sells spawn from local strains of oyster and wine cap and also shiitakes (which are native to asia) which grow well in this climate.
