Shiitake Logs: grow your own edible mushrooms! Hosted by Brooklyn Grange; With Expert Nick Laskovski of Dana Forest Farm
September 10th 5pm-7pm; Price: $40 per person; ORDER TICKETS HERE
Join the farmers at Brooklyn Grange as they inoculate several dozen fresh cut maple logs with shiitake spores under the guidance of mushroom farmer Nick Laskovski. Nick will be joining us from Waitsfield, VT where he grows certified organic shitake mushrooms and is running a shiitake research project sponsored by the USDA’s Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program (SARE). A single shitake log can yield over a pound of mushrooms per year and will grow for up to four years, and we at the Grange are thrilled to be adding these tasty shrooms to our farm selection.
The workshop will last roughly two hours, and participants are invited to purchase an inoculated half-log for $10 to bring home. Bring a drink and a snack to enjoy as you watch the sunset from our rooftop farm.
