Mycology- With Alex Dorr of Fungi Ally
Come learn about the life cycles of a mushroom and different roles fungi play in ecosystems. We will explore how you can interweave mushrooms in your garden and reap the benefits of a multi-species biodiverse permaculture based garden system. We will learn how to grow shiitake mushrooms on hardwood logs through hands on demonstration, and learn to grow King Stropharia Mushrooms on wood chip beds. Participants will be able to take home a “cardboard burrito” of King Stropharia spawn (*While supplies last*) to make their own Stropharia bed. Afterwards we will take a short walk in the woods and look for our very own medicinal and culinary fungal friends.
