Having fortuitously secured some newly cut oak from a not very secret location I’m now in the position to run some mushroom log inoculation workshops
In this practical workshop location you will learn how to grow exotic mushrooms on hardwood logs. You will learn about how to select and prepare logs and how to inoculate them with Shiitake mushroom spawn. You will also learn how to care for your inoculated logs and how to encourage and maintain fruiting logs for many years.
For the price of the workshop you will also get to take home your own freshly inoculated oak log (similar sized commercially available mushroom logs cost £15-£25). Extra mushroom spawn will also be available for those who would like inoculate their own logs at home, (check that your own logs are suitable first). Extra fresh oak logs may also be available depending on bookings.
The workshop will be led by me, Dominic Thomas. Ive been collecting wild mushroom for over twenty years and growing exotic mushrooms for nearly ten.
The first workshop is on Sunday 10th November at 10.30am
Workshop price including one mushroom log to take home £10
