This is a Part 1 of a 3 part series to bring you through the basics of outdoor log cultivation to planning a small farm business of outdoor mushroom farming. This workshop series is created and presented by Tracey Testo, CCE Columbia Greene Agroforestry Educator and John Michelotti of Catskill Fungi.

Part 1: Log Inoculation

Location: Camp Log Inoc - Big Indian, NY Date: May 21 Time: 12pm-3pm

Learn to grow edible mushrooms on logs for at home cultivation or to start a small scale mushroom farm. This outdoor workshop will cover the life cycle, ecological functions of fungi, cultivation overview as well as outdoor cultivation of fungi. We will drill holes in logs, fill them with mushroom spawn, and seal them with wax. You will learn what types of wood are viable, sources for mushroom spawn, how to take care of your log, fruiting mushrooms, harvesting, and pest control. Inoculate 2 logs and take 1 home and grow mushrooms outdoors.
