Event description

Description

In this hands-on workshop, you will inoculate mushroom logs and we will teach you the steps involved in growing shiitakes. After helping the farmers with log preparation, we’ll serve lunch, featuring our shiitake mushrooms, and everyone leaves with a mushroom log to fruit at home.

Please dress to be outside for a few hours, in clothes that can get woody debris and wax on them. During the hands-on portion of the day, you will be standing. We have a tent for rain protection in the shiitake yard, so this is a rain or shine event.

No skills necessary and all ages from 10 up are welcome.

This workshop is led by Steve & Julie Rockcastle and their farm crew, who have been producing outdoor log grown shiitake mushrooms for 10 years. They also raise 100% grass fed beef, and are certified organic for chicken, mushrooms and vegetables.
