About the event
Whether you grow, forage or purchase mushrooms, it is easy to bring them into your kitchen and medicine chest. Learn how to best prepare mushrooms for optimal benefit and get inspired to incorporate them into your daily life through this informative workshop. The second part of the day will be spent learning to grow mushrooms and everyone will take home their own inoculated log.
Part I: Mushrooms in the Kitchen and Apothecary The first part of the day will be spent learning to prepare mushrooms for food and medicine. After a presentation on the healing properties of mushrooms by herbalist Linda Conroy, everyone will make several preparations to take home including a delicious pate, infused vinegar, tincture, and powder blend. We will also prepare mushrooms to include in our lunch.
Delicious Mushroom-based lunch (noon-1 pm)
Part II: Mushroom Cultivation. Join mycologist, Ingrid Daudert. She will offer a comprehensive presentation on mushroom cultivation. This talk will be followed by a hands-on process of shiitake mushroom log inoculation. During the hands-on component, everyone will help to inoculate logs, learn to prepare and inoculate a wine cap mushroom bed, and grow Oyster and Agaricus mushrooms in the garden as well as in small spaces. Everyone will take home an inoculated log, as well as handouts, recipes, and instructions. Additional logs will be available for purchase.
