Mushroom Production for the Home Grower

March 9, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Mushrooms make a wonderful complement to freshly harvested herbs and vegetables from your garden and are not any more difficult to grow. Janell Baran of Blue Owl Hollow Forest Farm will demonstrate a straight-forward log inoculation technique suitable for small-scale production of several different culinary mushrooms such as shiitake, oyster, and lion’s mane. Given the right situation and basic maintenance, these logs will thrive for years in your yard, shade garden, or woodlot.

Log harvesting, site selection, care of inoculated logs, and various mushroom cultivation resources will be discussed. The class fee is $30.

Optional: When you register, you may choose to pre-order an inoculated shiitake mushroom log ($50) from Blue Owl to take home the night of the class.
