Please join us for an evening of fun-gi! Mushrooms are a wonderful crop to grow in the city, and can be incorporated into many existing growing systems to offer healthy, nutritious, and medicinal food to people and community. This workshop will offer gardeners and farmers of all sizes insight into a wide range of both outdoor and indoor growing methods for mushroom production. Anyone interested in learning more about basic mushroom cultivation techniques, starting a new enterprise, or considering commercial production at some scale are welcome to attend.
Steve Gabriel from Cornell Small Farm and CCE Harvest NY Urban Agriculture Specialists, Yolanda Gonzalez and Samuel Anderson, along with mushroom growers Jie Jin and Jan Mun will lead hands-on demonstrations throughout various “inoculation stations” and teach the basic principles necessary to start incorporating them into your existing gardening and farming practices.
