Marvelous Mushrooms: A Shiitake Log Cultivation Workshop
Discover the fascinating world of ancient shiitake log cultivation with mushroom enthusiast, Fabio Martini. In this exciting workshop, you will be introduced to traditional log cultivation methods, as you are guided step by step through the preparation and inoculation of your own take home shiitake mushroom log!
Enjoy home-made mushroom pate and fresh bread as you learn how to care for your shiitake log, and discuss a variety of topics in the world of mycology. We will also be providing a tour of UBC Farm’s Agroforestry Shiitake Mushroom Trial.
Although some amateur mycologists may have questionable morels, you’ll delight in the extensive experience and knowledge of Urban Zucchini’s Fabio Martini. With over 5 years of organic mushroom growing experience, Fabio is dedicated to introducing Vancouverites to the wonders of urban mushroom cultivation. Fabio has even been busy establishing an agroforestry mushroom trial on UBC Farm! Click here to learn more about this exciting project.
