Name: Growing Mushrooms - Wine Caps on Straw
Date: May 18, 2019
Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM MDT
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, we will learn one method of farming your own mushrooms - growing wine cap mushrooms in prepared straw.  We will cover some mycology basics, including some ID tips, as well as how to best prepare the substrate, locate and build a bed, and alternative methods that could be used.  A practical, on site demonstration will also be held.
