Event Description:

While Wyoming isn’t exactly known for its edible mushrooms, they can and do grow here.  Even better, with a little effort you can grow your own!

In this course, students will learn one method of farming their own mushrooms - growing oysters on cottonwood logs.  This workshop will cover the basics of mushroom farming, a hands on demonstration of how to prepare and spawn your own logs, and a discussion of alternative methods and tips for adapting to Wyoming’s climate.  Participants will be able to take home a spawned log of their own.
