Are you new to edible mushrooms, but want to bring them into your life? Together we'll learn simple, low-tech methods of growing them yourself, on whatever materials you have access to, wherever you live! Whether it's an apartment, backyard, homestead or farm, we'll explore different options based on permaculture design principals that are suited to a range of different growing spaces! We'll look at growing oyster mushrooms, wine caps, and shiitake on a range of different substrates. Then, get some hands-on experience inoculating pasteurized straw with oyster spawn. 2-gallon fruiting buckets with the freshly inoculated straw substrate will be available for purchase to take home and fruit yourself, as well as an inoculated baggie of coffee grounds for free! Join us for this fun and exciting crash course in DIY mushroom cultivation, you'll be surprised how easy and accessible it can be.
