How to Grow Shiitake Mushrooms

April 6, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Learn how to inoculate logs to grow shiitake mushrooms with Woodland Jewel mushroom farmer Norm Fetter. Norm will review everything from what kind of wood makes a suitable substrate, to choosing the appropriate mushroom spawn, to the hands-on work of the inoculation process.

You’ll also learn about mushroom biology, propagation strategies for other kinds of mushrooms, and the nature of the mushroom production operation at Woodland Jewel.

As part of this workshop you’ll be inoculating your own log, which you can take home with you!
