Fun with Fungus: Growing Shiitake Mushrooms

Classes available May 20th & May 27th and June 3rd & 4th

Learn to grow shiitake mushrooms from Western NY’s largest shiitake farm. We’ll kick off the day with a presentation that will teach you about mushroom cultivation, then we’ll head to the heart of the shiitake yard to inoculate mushroom logs. After some hard work and a lot of fun, we’ll share lunch together, featuring Green Heron shiitake mushrooms. Everyone will take home a log to fruit at home and the skills to grow their own gourmet mushrooms!

Come see why we think mushrooms are so much FUN!

Green Heron Growers is a certified organic farm run by Steve & Julie Rockcastle. Shiitake mushrooms have been part of the farm products since 2007. Other farm ventures include raising 100% grass-fed beef, pastured poultry & pork and certified organic produce.

Adults: $40; Children 10-15 $20 Register by phone or on the website
