Introduction to Mushroom Cultivation

  • Tuesday, April 30, 2019, 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Here in the northeast, cultivating log-grown mushrooms can be commercially viable even for small operations. Join Ken Mudge, retired Cornell Associate Professor of Horticulture and co-author of the book "Farming The Woods", for a presentation on forest cultivation of shiitake, and other specialty mushrooms, such as oyster and lion’s mane, for home or small farm-scale production.

Learn the proper tree species, timing, inoculation and management techniques, along with the basic economics and marketing.

Program participants will have the opportunity to inoculate a log that they will take home. Anyone interested in growing mushrooms for commercial sale or personal use is encouraged to attend.

The fee includes an inoculated log, a copy of "Best Management Practices for Log-Based Shiitake Cultivation in the Northeastern United States”, and refreshments.

Space is limited.

Pre-registration required. To register, call 585-394-3977 x 427 or Nancy with your name, address, and phone number.
