Presented by John Collier

It’s fun and easy to cultivate edible mushrooms using logs and stumps in the moist shade of your own property! 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 other mushroom varieties you can grow and participants will receive information on where to buy plug spawn and supplies.

Cost is $30 and includes all instruction and materials, enough to get you started on your own home grown delicious mushroom adventure. Class size limited to 20. Tickets are non-refundable. (In the event that you are unable to use your ticket we will make every effort to resell your ticket and refund your money, but if we can’t find someone to purchase the seat, there will be no refund.)
