Postponed to 2021
Fee: $55; $40 for MOFGA members

Mushrooms are delicious nutritional powerhouses and a great addition to homestead garden. However, fungi have very different needs than other vegetables we grow and require thoughtful management.

Learn how to approach mushroom growing outdoors, on logs, and practice inoculating logs harvested from MOFGA's woodlot. Participants will be able to bring an inoculated log, ready to grow shiitake mushrooms, home with them.

Experienced growers Lou DiSalvo and Lisa Jonassen (from Island Mushroom Co) will lead this introductory workshop that's suitable for total beginners.
