Be a Fun Guy or Gal at White Oak Pastures' Mushroom Workshop March 7
Make room for ‘shrooms on this weekend’s calendar. Zoom south to the Mushroom Cultivation Workshop at White Oak Pastures in Bluffton, Georgia on Saturday, March 7. The informative workshop begins with a noon lunch in the Pavilion then spores off into mushroom lifecycle and cultivation discussions. Hands-on activities include inoculating hardwood logs to grow shiitake mushrooms and propagating oyster mushroom spawn. Cap the day learning how to identify wild mushrooms using a dichotomous key -- handy to know so you won’t trifle with the wrong truffle when you’re out foraging. Just when you think you’re stuffed to the gills with info, bag up some oyster mushroom spawn to raise on your own homestead and hit the road around 4 p.m. Arrive at 10 a.m. if you would like to take a farm tour. $60 per person includes lunch, classes and supplies. Limited to 25 participants. Reserve your spot by calling 229-641-2081 or emailing Lori Moshman firstname.lastname@example.org.
