Get inside the world of fungi with us! Did you know that all you need to grow your own mushrooms is wine caps and wood chips?
Tyler and Brian from Mycopolitan will walk us through the fun process of establishing a wine cap patch in our yards and making our own local oyster mushroom kits. They'll also discuss how they approach observing mycelium, reading mushrooms, and what that has taught them about Fungi and Life. Anyone can learn to think like a mushroom, and it will make not only for greater yields, but a greater knowledge base to build on when embarking on future projects. Whether you have some grows under your belt or this is your first time working with mycelium-- and even if you've tried and failed-- you will leave this workshop ready to further your exploration of fungi.
It will be fun, guys!
