For the Love of Fungi
Can you say shiitake stir fry? What about grilled portobello sandwich? Which of your friends can say the mushrooms in their soup were homegrown? Now you can!
Rodney Morgan, local producer of gourmet mushrooms will take us down the road less traveled, cultivating edible fungi! This workshop will cover the basics of mushroom production, including isolating cultures and expanding to production spawn, grow room and outdoor log management plus demonstrations on starting shiitake and oyster mushrooms. Come learn and taste the possibilities!
Optional: You can inoculate your own mushroom log to take home after the workshop! If you'd like to take home your own log to grow at home, please choose the "plus mushroom log" with an additional $12 materials fee above.
