Shiitake Mushroom Workshop
Learn to grow your own edible gourmet mushrooms! In this workshop you will make your own Shiitake log to take home. This log could reward you with blooms of shiitake for up to five years. We will also discuss other edible, easy to grow mushrooms and touch on local wild edible mushrooms.
