Mushroom Log Inoculation Workshop

October 19 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm


mushroom log inoculationThis outdoor workshop with John Michelotti of Catskill Fungi will cover the life cycle, ecological functions of fungi, as well as their outdoor cultivation. Learn about what types of wood are viable sources for the mushroom spawn, how to take care of your log, fruiting mushrooms, harvesting, and pest control. Inoculation equipment, techniques, and outdoor set-up will also be covered. Each participant will go home with a log they’ve inoculated with mushroom spawn.

Come prepared with your mushroom questions!  Closed-toe shoes are required. Wear outdoor work clothes and bring garden gloves if desired. We will proceed rain or shine, unless severe storms are predicted.

We would like to thank John Michelotti for helping make this event possible.

Members: $30 | Non-members: $50

         This event is limited to 20 participants. If spots are full, you will automatically be added to the waitlist.
