Event description

Description

Learn from Big River Farms farmer José how to grow oyster mushrooms on a small scale at home. Oyster mushrooms are one of the easiest mushrooms to grow for beginners, and can replace button mushrooms in most recipes. In this workshop, José will showcase his small-scale mushroom production system at Big River Farms, and walk through considerations to take at every step of the process: site preparation, materials, inoculation, care, and harvest. Then, José will lead the group in a hands-on process of inoculating mushroom starters for participants to take with them and grow at home!

José is a first-year farmer at Big River Farms, but came to the program already experienced in growing artisan mushrooms in his place of origin, Mexico.

Registration fees from this workshop help support a network of beginning farmers as they start on their journey to farm in Minnesota. Big River Farms provides education, land access, infrastructure, and markets to primarily immigrant farmers and farmers of color. Thank you for supporting Big River Farms and new farmers!

This class will be presented in both English and Spanish.

Aprende de BRF agricultor José como sembrar los hongos pleurotus en pequeña escala en su casa. Hongos pleurotus son unos de los hongos más fáciles sembrar para los principiantes, y pueden tomar el lugar de los hongos “button” en la mayoría de recetas. En este taller, José va a demostrar un sistema de pequeña escala en la producción de hongos en Big River Farms, y caminar por los consideraciones a tomar en cada paso del proceso: preparar el sitio, materiales, inoculación, mantenimiento, y cosecha. Después, José va a ensenar al grupo usando un proceso activo como inocular una bolsa de hongos para cada quien a llevar y sembrar en su casa!

José es un agricultor en su primer año de Big River Farms, pero llegó con experiencia de sembrar hongos setas (pleurotus) de forma artesanal en su hogar de origen, México. Los costos de este taller ayudan a apoyar una red de agricultores nuevos como José mientras empiezan sus viajes de ser agricultores aquí en Minnesota. Big River Farms provee educación, acceso a tierra, infraestructura, y mercados para principalmente agricultores inmigrantes y personas de color. ¡Gracias por apoyar Big River Farms y agricultores nuevos!
