GROWING MUSHROOMS & MAKING MAPLE SYRUP


This 2-for-1 class is an amazing deal, with the first half of the class devoted to tapping Manitoba maple syrup, and the second half focused on growing your own shiitake mushrooms! Ken Fosty is well-known for his insights on both of these topics.

Taps will be available for $2.50 each payable to the instructor.

Mushroom component: Learn to grow specialty mushrooms in your backyard. Do you have access to oak branches? Learn how to 'plant' the mushroom spawn and grow your own shiitake mushrooms on oak logs. Hands-on demonstration will show how to inoculate the logs with mushroom spawn. You'll love growing your own specialty mushrooms backyard style. Mushroom Grow Kits will be available for $55 payable to the instructor.
