Workshops

Hastings, MI--October 11!!! Easygrow Mushrooms and Composting will be hosting a workshop on "Growing Gourmet Mushrooms on Logs" on October 11, 2014, from 1 pm to 4 pm, at the Pierce Cedar Creek Institute in Hastings, Mi. There will be an in-depth presentation on the basics and nuances of growing Shiitake, Reishi, Oyster, Hericium and other mushrooms on logs. Participants will then get hands-on experience inoculating their own mushroom log (that they will bring home with them at the end of the workshop) with the mushroom culture of their choice. Cost of the workshop is $65, and includes your log, handouts and 1 on 1 instruction with mycologist Chris Wright. This is a great opportunity for those on the western side of the Michigan to participate in a mushroom-growing workshop (we've been receiving requests for a west-Michigan workshop for a few years now!!!). For more information, contact the Pierce Cedar Creek Institute, 701 W. Cloverdale Rd. Hastings, MI 49058. 269-721-4473. cedarcreekinstitute.org
