Shiitake mushrooms are the foundation product of any specialty mushroom business. In this workshop, you will learn everything you need to know about profitable Shiitake cultivation on wood logs and how you can bridge the gaps in mushroom production with fruiting Shiitake on sawdust blocks.
This hands-on class covers the latest log cultivation research on optimizing spawn run and utilizing the high-speed method developed in Japan by the industry leaders - enabling even northern growers to do fall/winter inoculation for spring/summer shiitake production in as soon as 5 months! Converting an indoor grow space to accommodate Shiitake cultivation on logs as well as supplementing production with growing mushrooms on sawdust blocks will be discussed. This class is appropriate to both aspiring and seasoned mushroom growers.
Each participant will inoculate their own shiitake log to take home along with a shiitake fruiting block and a manual for the high-speed method. Coffee, bakery in the morning, and lunch is included. Registration required by Nov 6. No refunds for cancellations after November 6.
Class limit: 20.
