Come learn how to cultivate your own edible mushrooms, such as winecaps and oyster mushrooms! More info...
Using some readily accessible tools and techniques, artist and hobby mycologist Isaac Weiss will walk participants through some low-tech processes involved in growing culinary mushrooms. Students will gain an understanding of basic mushroom terminology and growth parameters (light, humidity, temperature), and hands-on experience in preparing and inoculating straw to grow mushrooms. Participants will be guided through the steps of creating their own mushroom bag, and sent home with an understanding of how to care for it to encourage fruiting. With the knowledge gained in class, students could use their mushroom bag to inoculate other bags, and repeat the process at home indefinitely!
