***Note, this event is being repeated on May 31 to accomodate more interested members!***

Member Aaron Parker has generously offered to lead a skillshare at his home in West Falmouth on Mushroom Cultivation! I expect that this will fill up fast so please RSVP "yes" AND make your payment (see below) to hold your spot by May 15th.

The skillshare will include:
An indoor session to start that covers...
*Overview and suggested reading
*Where to obtain cultures
*Sterile Tissue culture (with 3-5 practical demonstrations)
*Spawn making

Potluck Lunch (please bring your own potluck kit!)

In the afternoon you'll head outside to plug some logs. Aaron says: "I have started spawn for *Pleurotus ostreatus (oyster mushroom) *Grifola frondosa (miatake / hen of the woods) *Laetiporus sulfureus (chicken of the woods) *Lentinula edodes (shiitake). With a little luck i should have extra spawn, so people who are interested can bring a few freshly cut (within a few months) hardwood logs to inoculate and bring home."

Cost is $5 to $10 donation on a sliding scale. However, no one will be turned away due to lack of funds so if this fee presents a problem pls contact the meetup organizer, as barter or time donation could potentially replace the cash donation.

You can pay by PayPal on this site or by using the registration form ( and sending a check. Payment must be received by May 15th to hold a spot.
