Explore the wondrous world of fungi and learn how to grow and forage mushrooms with Steve Gabriel of Wellspring Forest Farm and Olga Tzogas of Smugtown Mushrooms.

During this 3-day intensive course participants will identify wild mushrooms and learn tree identification and forest ecology, inoculate logs, straw, and grain, learn low-tech propagation techniques, of course, cook and eat mushrooms.

Participants will build their skills in mushroom identification, cultivation, and propagation and leave the course equipped with the knowledge and tools to safely forage and several active mushroom projects to take home!
