Shiitake Mushroom Growing Workshop

May 8, 2010 (All day)

The University of Vermont and Cornell University are involved in a 3 year research initiative on the forest cultivation of shiitake mushrooms and are looking for farmers and forest owners who are interested in growing shiitakes as an alternative enterprise on their land.

Together with experienced shiitake growers from NY, NH and VT, we are developing a program that will help you to not only learn how to grow shiitake mushrooms from A to Z, but also help you to decide if you want to get into Shiitake farming on a commercial enterprise scale of at least 100 logs a year, gradually building to 500 harvestable logs at your site.
