Virtual Mushroom Inoculation

Monday, May 18, 2020

Ever wanted to learn how to grow your own gourmet mushrooms? Join us virtually for a mushroom inoculation workshop. Sign up, stop at Swiss Valley for a curbside pickup of mushroom spores and hardwood logs, head home, open our educational link on how to inoculate and care for your log spores through pre-recorded videos. From the comfort of your home you will get hands on experience in the inoculation process. Then later own you will be able to watch your mushrooms grow, harvest, and enjoy them. The two species of provided mushroom spores are shiitake and oyster. Fees: $5/log. Limit two hardwood mushroom logs per person. Pick up the hardwood log and spores during Swiss Valley Nature Center business hours during the week of May 18th Monday through Friday 7:30 AM to 3:30 PM.
