Sunday, May 16th from 10-11am
Cultivating mushrooms on logs is an ancient cultivation method, dating back as the earliest recorded way to grow mushrooms. Log cultivation is fascinating and easy but requires patience and attention to detail. Growing on logs is one of the closest methods to the way mushrooms grow in nature, so one must apply some basic knowledge of ecology and natural systems to be successful. Mushroom logs are beautiful, mysterious, and can be integrated into any myco-inspired landscape with some proper planning. With sufficient care, mushroom logs can fruit for up to 6 years or more! In this 1-hour online seminar, we will discuss: 1) An introduction to wood decomposing fungi 2) How to choose the right logs/stumps for growing mushrooms 3) complete methods for successfully growing mushrooms from logs/stumps 4) How to care for your logs/stumps and when to harvest mushrooms from them. Taught by mycology enthusiast Zach Hedstrom.
