    Tradd Cotter at the Southern SAWG Conference
    Southern SAWG Conference, Mobile AL

    Tradd Cotter will teach multiple workshops at the 2015 Southern SAWG Conference on January 16-17, 2015. The workshops will include: Mushroom Cultivation for Commercial Farms – Understand the best ways to cultivate mushrooms on your farm. You’ll learn about inexpensive start-up options for beginners, and many commercial ideas to expand on. This class will energize your efforts and maximize your production. Topics include: life cycle of fungi; mushroom behavior and intuitive growing; choosing, buying, and storing spawn; woodland mushroom farming (logs, wood chips, and composts); indoor production (small and large scale); converting existing structures into grow rooms (barns, chicken houses, storage containers): marketing your mushrooms (trends, demand, strategies); organic pest management; alternative product development (powders, extracts, composts). Tradd Cotter, Mushroom Mountain (SC). Recycling, Composting, and Mycoremediation of Farm Waste Using Mushrooms – Got waste? Worried about contaminated soil or water? Rechannel your waste stream on the farm to grow edible mushrooms and create beautiful, organic worm compost as the end product. Many species of edible fungi sweat powerful enzymes into the environment capable of molecular disassembly of complex molecules such as hydrocarbons, aromatic chlorinated compounds, and pesticides. Mushrooms are also well adapted to filter, stun and destroy pathogenic bacteria that accompany failing septic systems, manure holding ponds, and even pet waste runoff. Learn how these mushrooms perform these miraculous tasks and how to develop a living barrier or filtration system that is customized to fit your needs. Talk will focus on biomass expansion, site engineering, and species of mushrooms that can be used for easy mycoremediation projects that anyone can do. Tradd Cotter, Mushroom Mountain (SC). Tradd's new book, "Organic Mushroom Farming and Mycoremediation: Simple to Advanced and Experimental Techniques for Indoor and Outdoor Cultivation," will be available for sale and signing.
