Event Details

Do you love the dense, meaty mushrooms from the farmers market but don't like paying high prices all of the time? Do you forage but sometimes come home with nothing because of unpredictable weather or competitive foraging?

The solution is to grow your own mushrooms! Many varieties are easy to grow indoors at home in materials that are readily available and FREE! In this class students will learn to make a Shiitake mushroom log and how to grow Oyster mushrooms in used espresso grounds. Students will learn about the basics of mycoculture, maintenance and care of mycelium cultures, how to propegate for more mushrooms and how to preserve harvested mushrooms for storing.

All workshop attendees will leave with a small shiitake log and a starter oyster mushroom culture of their own.

The Homestead at Seven Arrows East

Former Brooklyn urban farmer Meg Paska has taken what she learned about intensive urban growing and applied it to small acreage in Monmouth County, NJ. Working alongside Seven Arrows East, a year-round yoga retreat, The Homestead functions as a small, diversified CSA farm and learning place. Farming workshops also take place year-round.
