Join Mushroom Shed founder Amanda Heidel for a hands-on workshop that introduces participants to the wonderful world of fungi. Each participant will learn techniques to successfully grow mushrooms at home and engage in hands-on inoculation of coffee grounds and cardboard to grow delicious oyster mushrooms. The class will include information on the mushroom lifecycle, how to care for the mushrooms, and different cooking techniques and recipes. Participants will take home their own mushroom bucket kit and how-to guide.
