Mushroom Grower’s Workshop – December 16th 2006

Grower’s Workshop on December 16 from 10am to 4pm.
Ryan Woolverton and Kyle Hammon will teach this exciting opportunity for everyone to produce their own mushrooms. The techniques taught at this workshop can be applied to small to large scales, so apartment-dwellers and those living on large acreages are encouraged to attend the workshop. At the end of the workshop, each participant will have made an oyster mushroom “log” that should produce about 3 pounds of mushrooms. We encourage participants to experiment by bringing three pounds of an organic material of their choice…. Cardboard, cotton, linen, or hemp rags, are all excellent possibilities for us to explore.

The cost for this event is $10. Please contact Kyle at 463-5447 for more information and to register for the workshop
