Mushroom Cultivation - Pre Conference Workshop LIMITED

Limited Capacity seats available

PLEASE NOTE: THIS WORKSHOP IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE FULL FESTIVAL PASS Mushrooms recycle planetary debris, and allocate resources in ecosystems creating products humans use for food, fuel, fibre and medicines. This workshop focuses on mushroom cultivation basics, and permaculture concepts of ecological design that build and maintain regenerative ecosystems for human and ecological health. This is a perfect class for beginner and intermediate cultivators wishing to grow a diversity of edible and medicinal mushrooms easily at home or on the farm.  

Learn low-tech methods to grow mushrooms in gardens, landscapes, and woodlands, through hands-on activities.  Discussions will include:  biology and ecology of fungi, strain selection and substrate preparation, harvesting and using mushrooms, intercropping and perennial garden design, and small farm production.

Dress appropriately for 9000' elevation.
