Join Herbalist Julie Mitchell from Eos Botanicals for a DIY, hands-on workshop that introduces participants to a few low-barrier ways to cultivate culinary mushrooms! Each participant will learn techniques to successfully grow wine cap mushrooms in perennial beds at home and engage in a hands-on process of creating an indoor oyster mushroom fruiting kit. Medicinal mushrooms will be touched on as well, with suggestions on how to incorporate them easily and when appropriate, or for daily use. Please note that masks will be required for this class, per instructor’s request.
