8/10/19- Growing Mushrooms: All About the Oyster (SOLD OUT)




Growing your own edible and medicinal mushrooms is an incredibly easy and rewarding experience.  In this class Wes will focus on growing the Oyster mushroom as well as other low tech, easily repeated native mushroom growing methods.

We will focus primarily on the Oyster mushroom in this class because it is awesome! It is not a picky mushroom… its easy to grow, likes lots of trees and a variety of environments, it is temperature tolerant and easily cloned. Not only is it prolific, but it is incredibly beneficial as well.  This humble mushroom makes powerful medicine and is a globally renowned delicious food, all of which you will learn about in this class.  You will be able to practice and put to use all that you have learned about this magical mushroom because you will take home an oyster mushroom spawn bag which oyster mushrooms can grow directly from or you can spread it and make more oyster spawn.

If you get bitten by the mushroom growing bug, you are in luck.  Wes will also share other low tech growing methods for other native mushrooms which you can put to practice at home easily and with a new confidence.
