Mushroom Permaculture Sundays
A 2 part Ecologically Appropriate Mushroom Course at Lane Community College’s Learning Garden, Eugene, Oregon
Sundays for the Public: $75 total
When: November 11th and 18th 11am-4pm
Come learn how to grow mushrooms in your garden and homestead in ecologically sound ways
As a group we will start by exploring the landscape of the Learning Garden grounds to examine and discuss some of the natural patterns of life for Fungi.
We will then carry out a variety of activities:
Mushroom Logs and Their Uses: I will take you through the process of properly selecting and inoculating mushroom logs, we will then work with the BioSwale and build a living mushroom log footbridge, as well as strengthen the bank of the swale for erosion protection.
Mushroom Patches: Constructing our own mushroom patches can serve a multitude of purposes including food production, erosion control, and wastewater filtration. We will plan out and build-up native edible mushroom patches in appropriate locations on the Learning Garden grounds.
Composting and Mulching for Mushrooms: Many mushrooms live directly in contact with a diverse array of soil organisms, and often they can be encouraged to grow in more passive ways through developing specific composts and mulches. We will construct and inoculate these environments in class.
This is a hands-on workshop for integrating fungi into your world, no prior mushroom knowledge required, this class is all about getting to know fungi and learning to interact with them.
Cost: $75 covers both days, November 11th and 18th
Includes: Workbook on techniques used in the class and Garden Giant mushroom spawn
