Explore the wondrous world of fungi and learn how to grow and forage mushrooms with "Farming the Woods" co-author Steve Gabriel and special guest instructor Tradd Cotter of Mushroom Mountain and author of "Organic Mushrooms Farming & Mycoremediation." During this 5-day intensive course participants will identify wild mushrooms and learn tree ID and forest ecology, inoculate logs, straw, and grain, learn low-tech propagation techniques, build a stormwater biofilter, create a styrofoam substitute, and, of course, cook and eat mushrooms. Cost to participate in this course is set at $600, which includes lunch each day and lots of fungi to take home. An additional cost of $50 is requested for those who would like to camp on-site.
