Discover the key concepts of growing, harvesting, preserving, and cooking Shiitake and Oyster Mushrooms, as well as using them for medicine.
For eighteen years, Quiet Creek Herb Farm & School of Country Living has been offering workshops on sustainable living – mushrooms are an exciting part of our mission. Claire and Rusty Orner, owners and stewards of Quiet Creek (a non-profit farm), will incorporate Quiet Creek’s model by teaching you how to master your mushroom passion to benefit your diet and health. The theory of mushroom growing, harvesting, preserving, cooking, and medicinal use will be applied in hands-on classes which will stimulate your intellect, your taste buds, and your do-it-yourself know how.
In addition to formal classes, the following optional activities are available for those interested: mountain biking (bikes & helmets provided), hiking, journaling, and a community music circle (feel free to bring your own instruments!)
This workshop is limited to 20 students, so sign up early.
