Attention fellow denizens of Mother Gaia.
In honor of Earth Day, April 22, 2012, mycologist/microbial ecologist
Chris Wright of Michigan State University and Easygrow Mushrooms and
Composting LLC will be presenting a free lecture on “The Importance of
Fungi in Sustaining the Earth!” Chris will talk about the importance of
fungi to various aspects of our biome, and discuss how the actions of
peoplekind are impacting the biosphere.
This 50 minute, free presentation will directly precede a 3 hour, hands-on
workshop on “Growing Gourmet Mushrooms on Logs.” This workshop will
provide hands-on instruction on how to inoculate and cultivate mushrooms
on logs. Each participant will inoculate their own log with the mushroom
of their choice and will bring the log home with them at the completion of
the workshop. All materials and complete instruction (with handouts) on
how to produce gourmet mushrooms on logs are included in the price of
tuition ($60 per participant). Anyone who is considering to integrate
mushroom cultivation into their farm or cropping system is strongly
encouraged to attend.
Chris has been growing mushrooms and presenting workshops on mushroom
cultivation for over 25 years, and is ready to share his experience with
you. The cost of the workshop is $60. Class size is limited, and
pre-registration is required. To register call Colasanti's Produce and
