Weavers Way Workshop: Grow Your Own Shiitake Mushrooms - CANCELLED

Saturday, November 17, 2018 - 10:00am to 1:00pm

Grow your own shiitake mushrooms on a log in your backyard! In this workshop, we will inoculate mushroom logs with shiitake plugs. You will be able to take the logs home and care for them while they grow out. This is a hands-on workshop, where we will be driving the log holes, driving in the plugs and sealing them.

This program will be led by Weavers Way Working Member Andy Andrews. Andy is the owner and operator of Gardens of Gratitude, a garden design, installation and maintenance business, specializing in vegetables and edible landscaping. He has worked in the agricultural field for 20 years, including nine years as the Farming Director at Pennypack Farm and Education Center in Horsham, PA.


Weavers Way workshops include presentations, hands-on classes, book studies, film screenings and discussions. Most are free and open to the public. Weavers Way members who lead workshops get three hours of work credit — what a great way to earn, or maintain, your Working Member status for 5% off all your purchases!
