Learn about mushroom production and harvesting, enjoy making a pizza with mushrooms in the earth oven, and take home a 12″ inoculated log.

Have you been wanting to know more about the process of growing your own mushrooms at home?

Join the Strawbale Studio for our mushroom workshop!. In this workshop, you will learn how to grow three different types of mushrooms (Shiitake, Oyster, and Wine Cap) using three different methods of inoculation. At the end of the day, you will have a 12 inch Oyster totem to take home with you so you can enjoy homegrown mushrooms from your own home! We will also fire up the Earth Oven and each person can make their own individual pizza with previously harvested mushrooms !

Strawbale Studio has been growing Shiitake Mushrooms abundantly since 2013!! Yay! Our Oyster Totems were a wonderfully successful their first year, 2021!

In this unique class you will learn what you need to know for getting started on your own mushroom cultivation:Types and principles of growing, log selection, inoculation, choosing the location, and where to get spores for your future mushroom adventure ! We will share some experiences with wild-foraged mushrooms on the land as well.

Participants will help inoculate a 12″ log to take home, assist in the construction of a “Garden Giant” mushroom bed, and see an outdoor Shiitake crib stack as well as Oyster Mushroom Totems!

Instructors: Deanne Bednar, Shane Norris, Levi Fiak

$70 price includes instruction, Earth Oven Pizza Supper, and 12″ inoculated log to take home!   REGISTRATION

Dress for the weather, expect to be outside most of the time.

Covid masks may be requested indoors. Bring a mask 🙂 If this doesn’t work for you, check back later for 2022 classes, when things may have changed. I am possibly at higher risk, being 75 and  not vaccinated.   Mostly we will be outdoors 🙂 YAY
