Event Description

Come learn to grow delicious edible mushrooms by inoculating logs, straw, and a garden bed. The workshop will be led by Willie Crosby owner at Fungi Ally, a mushroom farm in western Mass. Willie has been growing mushrooms for 5 years both indoors and outdoors. Participants will go home with an inoculated log and straw bag that will provide 3-5 pounds of mushrooms over their lifetime. There will be a $20 fee for the class

Participants will learn to inoculate logs with shiitake mushrooms, inoculate straw bags with oyster mushrooms, and install a wine cap mushroom bed in the garden. These methods are easy ways in incorporate mushrooms into your farm or garden. Mushrooms are exploding in popularity as delicacies in restaurants and as nutritional powerhouses. This workshop will prepare participants to produce a mushroom FEAST at little cost in their own homes.

Fee will include an inoculated log and straw bag to take home. If you are interested in attending, and the ticket amount is out of your range, please contact operations@massarofarm.org to inquire about a fee waiver. We believe education should be accessible.
