Fun with Fungus Workshop

Shittake Mushroom
 Attention, mushroom lovers.  Here's an opportunity to learn about growing mushrooms in your own backyard! 

Skookum, a Powell River cooperative, is offering just such a workshop on Sunday, April 10th from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.   This workshop will focus on growing shiitake and oyster mushrooms using dowel plugs in hardwood logs.  Some other methods will be very briefly covered, but the dowel plug method is easy to do, and provides an efficient and aesthetic way to grow.

Further information is available at Skookum Blog.
