Growing Forest Fungi

Growing Forest Fungi


Participants in this workshop will learn various techniques for growing different species of mushrooms using a variety of materials. You will also participate in a hands-on experience inoculating bolts of wood with shiitake spawn and bring home your own inoculated log for personal enjoyment. In addition, there will be an opportunity to examine where we harvested small pole-size trees used for inoculating the shiitake mushrooms, and understand the rationale for harvesting those particular trees as part of forest improvement. If you are interested in learning how to grow a variety of mushrooms, you won’t want to miss this program.



This event is hosted by Cornell Cooperative Extension. CCE of Columbia and Greene Counties is part of the Cooperative Extension land grant system, an educational partnership between county, state, and federal governments that is administered in New York State through Cornell University.
