Shiitake mushroom log workshop, Saturday May 4th @ 4pm... last of the season!

Posted

Mushroom logs! That's what we'll be doing... just one last time this spring. Join us for a casual and hands-on mushroom cultivation experience starting at 4pm on Saturday May 4th. All participants will create their own shiitake mushroom logs. Materials provided. Cost is $25 per log, couples or friends are welcome to share the experience.

Instruction will include a brief tune up on using powered drills. We will demonstrate the proper techniques for drilling and plugging recently cut hardwoods with fresh mushroom plug spawn. The "mushroom log" will require about one year of incubation time before it begins production, but once it gets going... expect mushrooms several times a year for years to come!

We'll discuss proper care and maintenance, along with tips on provoking mushroom harvests, harvesting techniques, and more. Shiitake mushroom logs are an exciting way to recycle recently cut hardwood and make use of shaded garden areas to produce a healthy and nutritious food!

Space is limited, advanced registration is required. Call 865.329.7566 or stop by our Knoxville showroom for more information. For those that want to wrap up their reservations quickly, we have an easy way to purchase tickets online... just click here for more information.
