Cultivating Mushrooms on Logs
November 28, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm EST$20
Join us Sunday following our singing bowls as we come together to deepen our relationship with nature through the fungi kingdom. With this immersive introduction, we will learn just how easy it can be to cultivate gourmet and medicinal mushrooms right at home. We will focus on the basics of cultivation, and so we are going to be actively inoculating our own mushroom logs to take home. Shitake, Blue Oyster, and Tiger Sawgill will be our chosen species to work with here. You will also get to take home your own log and finish the cultivation process at home as you wait for the mycelium to colonize the log, and in time produce fruits.
We will also discuss a light scientific perspective and history of the fungi species that we will be cultivating and will cover a brief introduction to the fungi life cycle. We won’t go too in depth for this event, as the aim is to offer an opportunity to deepen our connection with nature through the fungi world and to enjoy ourselves with community. Depending on interest, we may offer events in the future that dive deeper into more specific areas of cultivation.
Space is limited so a RSVP is required. This event will be held outside rain or shine, so dress accordingly.
