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 by April 19, 2018.
