Oyster Mushroom Log Inoculation Workshops
Learn about simple ways to grow delicious edible mushrooms. Join this hands-on workshop with Rob Macrae, a lichen and fungi expert, who has collected oyster mushrooms from the local forests and used them for preparing spawn. He will supply this locally-sourced oyster mushroom spawn (and possibly some shiitake and chicken of the wood spawn) to the participants and will demonstrate how to inoculate logs, and how to care for the inoculated logs in order to cultivate mushrooms. The process is not difficult and does not require agricultural land. It is suited for a hobbyist curious about trying to grow a few mushrooms and may be scaled up for someone wishing to explore commercial mushroom cultivation.
The workshop will be help on the patio of our event venue. Dress for the weather and bring a water bottle. Practise leaving no trace. Be prepared to carry out any garbage you carry in.
Meet in the parking lot at 5248 Queen Victoria Road in Beasley (12 km south west of Nelson, BC) at 3 pm. Please present a copy of your workshop receipt upon arrival. Be prepared to take a short but steep walk up the hill to the venue. Please advise us if you have mobility issues. We are able to provide assistance upon request.
