JANUARY 13, 2018: OYSTER MUSHROOM LOG CULTIVATION WORKSHOP 1-3 p.m.

Join us for a fun, informative, hands-on mushroom cultivation workshop. Fungi have an important role in our forest as decomposers, and we can mimic that role in our backyards and gardens. Using local hardwoods, you will make your own mushroom producing log that should produce well into the future. The workshop will cover the tools needed and instructions for how to successfully grow gourmet food and medicine. [Max – 25] ($20 / person / log) Please register online at: www.southsloughestuary.org. Questions about this program?
