Shiitake Inoculated Mushroom Logs

Saturday, July 9, 2022 (10:00 AM - 1:00 PM) (CDT)


This basic introduction to mushroom cultivation will cover several species of gourmet mushrooms. The techniques on how to inoculate (plant) using different spawn (Equivalent to the root cuttings or vegetative propagation) that will be covered in the class, will allow home gardeners to grow mushrooms perennially. The second portion of the class will be hands on, where participants will inoculate a mushroom log they get to take home.

Speaker, Matt Ratliff uses his horticulture background to manage his family farm- Fruits, Nuts and Vegetables Farms LLC. They raise Non-GMO heirloom produce, several fruit trees, operate 6000 sq. ft. of greenhouse space and specialize in over 40 varieties of gourmet mushrooms. The who-sale division, Ready-2-Fruit LLC, produces and distributes mushroom kits and cultivation supplies nationwide through several garden catalogs, nursery/ greenhouses and select retailers.
