Have you been looking for a way to level up and diversify your garden? Maybe you have a shady, soggy section in your yard that isn’t suited to vegetables? If this sounds like you, learning to be a mushroom farmer with North Spore is the answer! The focus of this class will be to educate participants in two different outdoor mushroom cultivation methods:

  1. Log Inoculation
  2. Mushroom Beds

Over the course of 2 hours, we will explore fundamental principles of mushroom cultivation, discuss the many benefits of growing mushrooms, learn about various species and their growth parameters, and of course, create mushroom logs and a mushroom bed. Every participant will be able to take the log (approx. 2.5 feet) they inoculate home to care for and produce tasty mushrooms! 

What you bring:

  • Water bottle
  • Long pants
  • Close-toed shoes
  • Eye protection
  • Work gloves
  • Notebook (optional)
