Sharondale Farm Offering Grow-Your-Own Mushroom Workshops

If you’ve scanned the Truetimber Backyard store, you’ve probably seen our mushroom grow kit offerings. The oyster mushroom kit, indoor grow kit, and others are shipped directly from our friends at nearby Sharondale Farm in Keswick. But, while growing mushrooms at home isn’t particularly difficult, it does require some up-front knowledge. That’s why we were excited to see Sharondale will be offering three fall workshops on “Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms.”

From the Sharondale announcement:

Learn how to grow several different types of mushrooms using low-tech, low-cost methods in your garden or woodlot. Get hands-on experience inoculating logs for mushroom cultivation, as well as methods for annual, perennial, container and forest gardens. 

Discussions will include: 

  • Selecting mushroom species
  • Biology and ecology of fungi
  • Using mushrooms for personal and ecological health
  • Evaluating your growing substrates and conditions
  • Seasonal planning for mushroom harvests
  • How fungi are integral to healthy organic gardening practices

We will have spawn and tools available for sale at the end of the day.
