Come for the workshop, leave with your own shiitake log!
Includes a presentation exploring varieties and growing methods.
Be it for edible delicacies, bio-remediation, permaculture design or medicine, mushrooms are gaining widespread attention. Learn the stages of growth and methods of cultivation. Mushroom cultivation is fascinating and becoming a growing trend. Certain varieties can be grown in gardens and compost piles or even on coffee grounds or indoors in apartments.
We will be making shiitake mushroom logs and working with wine cap for a wood-chip bed and possibly almond agaricus for a compost bed if time allows.
This is a 4 hr hands on workshop. Learn what you need to know for your own mushroom projects whatever they are. Leave with the understanding and know how of mushroom cultivation AND your own shiitake log and possibly a few surprises! Logs or cultures may be used to fruit mushrooms at home for consumption.
