Mushroom Cultivation Workshop!
Jess Wikle, consulting forester and graduate student at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, will lead this workshop on cultivating shiitake mushrooms. The event will begin with an indoor presentation on the background and basics behind cultivating shiitake mushrooms. Then, participants will have a chance to inoculate their own log, and take it home!
The program fee of $15 for CFPA members and $20 for non CFPA members will help contribute to the cost of materials for the workshop. Please bring cash or a check made payable to Connecticut Forest & Park Association. The workshop is capped at 20 participants, and we expect this will be a popular workshop. RSVP today to reserve your spot!
**PLEASE bring your own tools if possible! This includes a hammer and a drill. email Emma: firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know what you can bring along.
