Do you love mushrooms? Have you always wanted to
grow your own, but didn't know where to start? Do you have a small farm and are
looking for a value-added product? This workshop is for you! This beginner's
workshop will cover growing shiitake and oyster mushrooms for the home
gardener. Participants will learn to inoculate logs with mushroom spawn and
will be provided with basic instructions for growing these mushrooms. This is a
hands-on workshop. Each participant will receive a 3- 4 ft long inoculated log
(shiitake or oyster) and an oyster mushroom ‘quick kit.'
Registration: $30 (includes one inoculated mushroom log (shiitake OR oyster) and an oyster mushroom quick kit); $10 extra gets a second log (oyster or shiitake) – please specify a preference.
