The Master Gardener Association of Macon County will be holding a Shiitake mushroom hands on learning workshop for homeowners who desire to grow Shiitake for additional income as an alternative agricultural crop or simply for personal consumption. This workshop will be held on Saturday February 26th from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Environmental Resource Center located 1624 Lakeside Dr Franklin NC 28734.

Speaker Christy Bredenkamp, Macon County Extension Director will cover all aspects of Shiitake mushroom production and will include a “hands on” experience where individuals will inoculate and bring home their own logs. For demonstration purposes, we ask that you bring 2 logs cut in the dormant season (Nov-March) preferably red, white or scarlet oak that are 3”– 6” inches in diameter, 4 ft. long and with bark intact free from bare or diseased spots. The presence of lichen or moss is fine. Workshop fee is $35.00 (pay at door cash or check).

For more information or to register please contact the Macon Extension Center at 828 349 2049 or e-mail christine_bredenkamp@ncsu.edu
