Mushrooms – delicious, nutritious, and useful. Although not as easy to grow as plants, many kinds of mushrooms can be grown at home. In this workshop you will learn general information about growing and collecting different kinds of mushrooms, as well as their uses as food, medicine, and dye. Indoor and outdoor cultivation techniques will be demonstrated, as well as cooking strategies. Mushrooms demonstrated will include shitake, oyster, reishi, and lion’s mane. An electric drill is required for this workshop. Register by email.
The Instructor, Clark Meremeyer has been experimenting with organisms since he was a child. Spending his summers in Montana on the family farm, as well as the large garden at home in California, helped Clark to discover nature. By age fifteen he was finding wild plants and animals, and was becoming well versed in cultivating plants and bacteria, but the only fungus he had ever grown was yeast. Clark started hunting large fleshy fungi at age eighteen, with only a field guide and common sense. Seventeen years later he has definitely eaten his share of wild mushrooms and has been extremely successful. For fifteen years he has tried a wide range of methods for growing mushrooms. Clark says, “Growing mushrooms is difficult but with the right conditions and care your plate will overflow.”
