Grow Your Own Workshop

Cities are once again being recognized as viable sites for food production and ever increasing numbers of people are cultivating their own backyards to grow food. Mushrooms are an ideal crop to maximize a small, urban space.  This workshop will provide you with all the information and materials needed to inoculate and care for your own shittake log, which will produce mushrooms for 4-5 years. The workshop led by Maria Finn will cover indoor and outdoor cultivation of shiitake logs.

The workshop is cosponsored by 18 Reasons.

Maria Finn is the author of A Little Piece of Earth, How To Grow Your Own Food in Small Spaces (Rizzoli, 2010) and the founder of City Dirt: The Bay Area Weekly Garden Newsletter for Foodies, Foragers, Tree-Huggers and Beauty Lovers:
