Event description

Description

No ecosystem is complete without fungi. Fungi are the builders of soils, the healers of plants, and the mediators of nutrients across the land. What's more, the mushrooms they produce provide us with delicious, nutritious food and medicine.

In this hand-on workshop at Bandstand Beds, we will be learning low-tech, and low-cost ways of growing gourmet and medicinal species of mushrooms in our gardens such as oyster mushrooms, king strophatria, and reishi. We will immerse you in the wonderful world of fungi, learning the numerous ecological benefits of having fungi in your garden, and the nutritious qualities of mushrooms that make them essential in everyone's diets.


The workshop will cover the following:

  • Fungal ecology and history of cultivation
  • Growing mushrooms on woodchip beds
  • Growing mushrooms on hardwood logs
  • The importance of mycorrhizal fungi in our soils
  • The nutritional and medicinal qualities of various mushrooms


This is part of our ongoing project at Bandstand Beds to turn it into a mycological haven, and we will be hosting these workshops on a regular basis. The course is open to everyone, and no prior knowledge is necessary. The cultivation will all be on-site, and won't require more physical activity than your usual day in the garden.
