5th Annual
May 22 & 23

Our annual mushroom weekend is back and expanding to include more on the
fascinating world of fungi. Workshops will cover the basics of both wild and
domestic mushroom production and harvesting with local grower Steve Sierigk
and special guest Rafter Sass.


(a) Join us SATURDAY, May 22 (9 a.m. to noon) at the sugarbush of Sapsquatch
Maple Products (http://www.sapsquatch.com) in Enfield, NY where local artist
and mushroom grower Steve Sierigk will cover the basics of shiitake log
cultures; species to harvest, when and how to prepare wood, and a hands-on
demo of the process inoculated with sawdust spawn. FEE: $30

(b) Join us for the ENTIRE WEEKEND (Sat & Sun, 9 – 5 p.m.), where in addition
to the Saturday inoculation, we’ll dive deeper into the potential of mushrooms
with guest instructor Rafter Sass. Discover how we can incorporate delicious,
nutritious fungi in our veggie gardens, backyards, lawns, landscaping,
balconies, window boxes, and more. Sunday’s workshops will be at Cayuta Sun
(http://cayuta.org) in Cayutaville, NY. Limited camping is available for a
donation. FEE: $100-300 (sliding scale)

Everyone takes home an inoculated log. No previous experience is necessary for
any of these workshops.
