Ever wanted to grow gourmet mushrooms in your own backyard?

When: Saturday, September 7th, 2019, 11am-12pm

Where: Jackeys Marsh

Host: Jas & Mitch

Cost: $50pp

Cash can be paid on the day but please fill in the booking form so we know you are coming. If you cannot make it please give us 1 weeks notice at least.

What to bring: Refreshments and a light snack will be provided. Please bring lunch if you need and a water bottle. Power drill if you have one (preferably battery power) and drill bits (8mm) and rubber mallets.

Please wear comfortable, warm clothes that you don’t mind getting messy.

You will be making and taking home two shiitake logs per person (Lentinus edodes S75 strain) that will be ready to fruit next Autumn. The logs will be about 1m long and provide amazing mushrooms for years to come with very little maintenance (just keep them out of the sun!). Costs include workshop, handouts, materials like shiitake spawn, beeswax and torches for sealing the holes and some drills, some drill bits and light refreshments.

The process involves drilling holes into the logs, inserting small dowels inoculated with mushroom spawn and sealing the holes with beeswax.

Everyone is invited! Even if you live in the suburbs you can grow your own mushrooms. All you need is a shaded space.
