Grow gourmet mushrooms in your woods
It's fun and easy to cultivate edible mushrooms using logs, stumps, and the moist shade of your wooded property. In this hands-on workshop, you will not only learn how to cultivate the mushrooms, but you'll actually do it! Each participant will receive a small alder log to work with and we'll go through the whole process of drilling, plugging, and waxing. You will have enough plugs to do your in-class log, along with extra plugs and wax to take home with you. We'll use shiitake plugs in this workshop, as they are particularly easy to grow. You'll learn about others you can grow, though, and receive information on where to buy plug spawn.
The workshop will be instructed by Kevin Zobrist, WSU Extension Forestry Specialist with experience successfully growing and harvesting shiitake mushrooms.
