Come learn a bit about the fascinating world of fungi and find out how easy it is to grow gourmet mushrooms! In this hands-on workshop, each participant will inoculate a small log with shiitake mushroom spawn, which should produce mushrooms for several years. We’ll also talk a bit about other ways of producing culinary mushrooms, and the difference between cultivating and foraging for fungi. As this workshop will be held outdoors and will involve use of power tools and wax, please come prepared for the weather and to get a bit messy. Closed-toed shoes are also required. Space is limited, so be sure to register by calling (315) 536-6114 or by visiting the link below. This program is free and open to all adults aged 18 and up!
