Dive into the magical world of growing your own edible fungi. They are delicious, nutritious and, they might even save the world! Mushrooms are known for their healing properties both as medicine for humans but also for our planet. They help plants uptake nutrients, clean-up toxic waste, and even compost entire clear cuts as well as a host of other uses.
This hands-on workshop will cover the tools needed and instructions for how to successfully grow gourmet mushrooms. Fungi have an important role in our forest as decomposers, and we can mimic that role in our backyards and gardens. Learn which mushrooms can be most easily cultivated at home, the difference between spores and spawn and what materials different mushrooms thrive on. Working with oyster, shiitake or other assorted mycelium, you will then make their own mushroom log to take home!
Class size is limited to 15 people per session. Cost: $40 for members of MycoMarin, $50 for non-members. Activity fee covers materials and benefits the MycoMarin to support education and community programs.
This workshop will be hosted at Green Jeans Garden Supply at 690 Redwood Highway, Mill Valley, CA. There will be three 60-minute sessions on Saturday, March 17th from 10:15am to 11:30am.
