Mushroom Growing on Logs

Saturday November 10th 1:30 PM – 3PM // The Green Project // 2831 Marais St. 

Join Jordan Bantuelle of All You Need for a hands on workshop where we will inoculate logs with shiitake, (possibly reishi), and oyster mushrooms. The cost covers admission, and then you can make logs with mushroom spawn and our homegrown beeswax to seal it!

Note that we will be using power drills, safety glasses recommended.

The workshop is $40 per attendee, and includes 1 take home log. Any additional logs cost $10/each. You will not save money by bringing your own log because we are still providing the spawn, tools, and wax. If you still wish to bring a log make sure you get the correct species, age, and health, which will be covered in the workshop.
