Learn the basics on incorporating these permaculture practices. There will be a hands-on demonstrations with pre-drilled logs for outdoor mushroom log cultivation & Wine Cap mushroom installation. Learn basic concepts of mycology (mushroom growing), explore their biology and ecology, and learn some basic methods for growing mushrooms in your garden for soil & plant health and for eating.
