Mushrooms Anyone ? ? ?


Mushrooms on a log

Mushroom Propagation

We have an excellent mushroom workshop on planned for our June 18th Volunteer Saturday.  Come work with us on the farm in the morning and then eat a farm grown lunch.  After lunch we will listen to a brief presentation by Casey Mullen from Fungi Perfecti and then make our own spawn with oyster mushrooms and cardboard.  Find out answers to the questions:   

What are mushrooms?  How do they grow? 

What do they need to grow well? 

How can we work with them?

After we make spawn on Saturday, participants will get to watch mycelium grow over the cardboard, then use it to inoculate other materials at home (sawdust, more cardboard, shredded paper / junk mail, etc).

Call us at 754-1849 to volunteer for the day.  We’d love to see you here on the farm!!  All hands are needed during this busy season.
