Learn about mycology and the process of inoculating Shiitake mushroom logs, which participants will have be able to take home with them. Your log will become an abundant food source in less than one year and can be expected to fruit for up to five years.
Coffee and other refreshments included. Class is limited to 20 participants.
Wearing gloves is highly recommended. Weather permitting, participants should expect to be outside for the entirety of the class. This could mean cool temperatures so they should dress accordingly. If it is to rain on the day of the event we will host the class inside of the greenhouse. Students should also expect to use power tools and handle logs around twenty pounds or so.
