January 17: Mushroom Log Inoculation
Winter and spring are great times of the year to inoculate some logs for growing mushrooms. It’s generally pre spring-garden craziness, plus the wild fungi are relatively quiet and the trees haven’t yet started putting energy into leaf production.
We’ll talk through the guiding principles of mushroom inoculation and give a thorough demonstration. After that there will be plenty of time for everyone to get hands on and inoculating.
The entire evening will be FREE. You are completely welcome to come and learn and experience and inoculate. If you want to go home with a 4ft Shiitake inoculated oak log then we’ll sell the logs at the end for $20 a piece. If you are interested in taking a log home then please send me a quick email, so we can make sure we have enough logs on hand.
