Learn to grow edible & medicinal mushrooms on logs. This outdoor workshop will cover life cycle, ecological functions of Fungi as well as outdoor cultivation of fungi. We will drill holes in logs, fill them with mushroom spawn, and seal them with wax. You will learn what types of wood are viable, sources for mushroom spawn, how to take care of your log, fruiting mushrooms, harvesting, and pest control. Inoculate logs and take one home and grow mushrooms outdoors.
