At Sladebank Woods
As part of Sladebank Woods Open Weekend Dominic will be leading a shiitake mushroom log inoculation workshop.
In this practical workshop you will learn how to grow exotic mushrooms on hardwood logs. You will learn about how to select and prepare logs and how to inoculate them with Shiitake mushroom spawn. You will also learn how to care for your inoculated logs and how to encourage and maintain fruiting logs for many years.
For the price of the workshop you will also get to take home your own freshly inoculated oak log (similar sized commercially available mushroom logs cost £15-£25). Extra mushroom spawn will also be available for those who would like inoculate their own logs at home.
The workshop will be led by Dominic Thomas chief grower at Fungusloci mushroom micro-farm. Dominic has been collecting and studying wild mushrooms for over twenty years and has ten years experience in cultivating exotic mushrooms.
Workshop price including one mushroom log to take home £10
