Hands-On Shiitake Mushroom Growing

Saturday, March 7, 1pm – 3pm

Grow your own gourmet mushrooms!

In this hands-on workshop with Winslow resident and mushroom aficionado John Collier, you will not only learn how to cultivate the mushrooms, but you’ll actually do it. Each participant will receive an oak 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. We’ll also learn about others varieties you can grow and receive information on where to buy plug spawn and supplies .

Bring a (charged) cordless drill and a 5/16″ bit if you have them.
