Mushroom Cultivation Workshop
10:00 am to 4:30 pm at Marr Pond Farm in Sangerville.
Ever think about growing mushrooms in your backyard or on your farm? This all-day workshop will cover the basics of growing shiitake mushrooms on hardwood logs for beginners and experienced growers, from tree selection to harvest.
The day will begin with an information-sharing session, including a walk through the woodlot and discussions on log selection, a log yard tour, inoculation techniques, fruiting cycles, and more. Following a potluck lunch attendees will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in log inoculation. Skills we will practice include: drilling, plugging, waxing, log yard stacking, and placement techniques. All tools needed will be provided, and we may have some extras on-hand for purchase. This workshop will provide you with the theoretical and hands-on knowledge to start your own home or commercial mushroom yard. The workshop is $30 and includes two inoculated logs to bring home.
Marr Pond Farm is an off-grid homestead and small-scale mushroom farm in it’s second year of production. We look forward to meeting new people in the community, and educating farmers and gardeners alike about mushroom cultivation. In addition to teaching you new skills, this workshop will provide much appreciated support for us as a recently established farm. In the interest of providing individualized attention and instruction this workshop has a limited number of spaces. Please RSVP by May 2nd.
