Come one, come all! Get your hands dirty and your minds filled with information about how to grow edible and gourmet mushrooms at your own home! Join the Cooperative at Dawn Farm as we host a 3 hour class that ends with YOU, the lucky participant, going home with
(1) all the knowledge shared in the class, and
(2) a plugged, sealed, and ready to grow mushroom log.
You will learn – How to use plug spawn to inoculate your own logs, How to seal the spawn, How to drill the logs, How to water and force a log to spawn, What to look for on your log to know when it’s finished, & Where to store the log
You will take home – One Mushroom log all ready to grow edible mushrooms, The logs take from 6-12 months to begin to fruit, Logs will produce mushrooms for up to 2 years, Logs produce 3-5 ‘flushes’ of mushrooms before they are exhausted

Extra Special Double Whammy:
Immediately after the mushoom log class we are hosting a FREE event called the Future of Food. From 1pm-4pm. This is a walk-through tasting/educational event where we imagine what food and food systems might be like in the future- a future where restorative and sustainable local food systems have replaced the current systems that stress our landbase.
This event is designed to share less well known foods and tastes we will have much YUM and great casual conversation. Join us!
