Growing Growers: Mushroom Production Workshop, Log-Based Shiitake Cultivation

Saturday, December 15, 2018 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Description: DESCRIPTION
A hands-on workshop focused on the profitable production of gourmet mushrooms.

Learn: Get an introduction to the diverse species and production methods typical of commercial fungiculture.

Do: The active training will focus on cultivation of shiitake mushrooms grown on hardwood logs. Each participant will be provided with the materials and equipment necessary to go through every step of the production process at our workspace in the Dreher Family 4-H Building. We'll showcase a variety of different tools and mushroom spawn types for participants to try.

Grow: Every attendee will take home their own shiitake log, capable of producing several pounds of edible mushrooms—a great gift for the holidays!

In an effort to keep costs low for this event, we're asking participants to bring their own corded drill to the workshop. We'll have a limited supply of drills available for registrants who contact:
