Join us for an outdoor, hands-on workshop and learn what mush-luv is all about. This workshop will give you the practical knowledge to learn how to grow mushrooms using recycled mycelium blocks lovingly donated by local mushroom farms. Not only will you be learning to grow mushrooms, build healthy soil, sequester carbon, feed the soil web, your plants and eventually you! You will also be helping divert organic matter from the waste stream! Mother earth will love you.
BYOBucket: Don't buy anything new. Let's recycle. Any container with holes in it will work including a cardboard box. Examples: 2-5 gallon bucket or sturdy planter pot, laundry basket, milk crate, or crate for vegetables, wire mesh container like a bird house, strawberry pot.
