Event Details

Learn about low tech do-it-yourself methods of growing edible mushrooms which are particularly well suited for urban areas. Each participant will learn the basics of choosing and sourcing appropriate mushroom "spawn" and growing medium, known as "substrate" (including used coffee grounds, cardboard and other easily sourced materials), methods of inoculating substrate, initiating "fruiting" of mushrooms, and how to care for indoor or outdoor "mycogardens". Additionally, each participant will make (& take) an oyster mushroom growing "block" (a small bag of oyster mushroom inoculated straw) so they can enjoy their own delicious mushrooms at home!
