Kotie will share and demonstrate some of the tricks of cultivating beautiful oyster mushrooms and guide you as you fill your own bags of straw inoculated with spores and oak logs with shiitake plugs, to grow (and harvest!) at home.
Lunch will be served in the Greenhouse Restaurant and is included in the price.
