Intro to Mushroom Cultivation
Blue Oyster Cultivation, Route 366 and Route 13, driveway on right
Instructors: Joe Rizzo, Carl Whittaker, Wendy Gravenstein-Rizzo
Wednesday, September 26, 5-8 pm

Intro to Mushroom Cultivation will cover basic mushroom biology, mushroom spawn production, indoor and outdoor mushroom production, and grow room design. We will emphasize practical solutions for small-scale/hobby mushroom producers. This information-heavy class will use lecture, demonstration, and hands-on exercises to give the students a basic foundation in mushroom production. We will also spend some time talking about innovative marketing methods for mushroom enterprises.

This location is sometimes difficult for folks to find. There are two intersections of Route 13 and Route 366. You want the easternmost one, nearer Dryden, by Phoenix Books, NOT the one by NYSEG, nearer Ithaca. We will bring a Groundswell roadside sign to help point you in the right direction.
