Grow your own mushrooms! It’s easier to grow mushrooms at home than you think.  You can grow delicious and nutritious culinary and medicinal mushrooms in your own garden or home (in apartments, and on rooftops and patios, too!) Learn how to inoculate stumps, logs, wood chips, and burlap sacks while improving your garden ecology.  In this interactive class you will learn the types of mushrooms that grow well in our area, the conditions required and the equipment you will need. We will discuss growing mushrooms on logs and stumps, saw dust and wood chips and other natural culture options. The class will also cover the basics of mushroom science and how fungi functions in nature. Learn how to inoculate logs, stumps and wood chip patches. You’ll also be able to take home your own Mushroom Log! 

Michael Judd has worked with agro-ecological systems and landscapes throughout the Americas for the last 16 years focusing on applying permaculture and ecological design to increase food security and community health in both tropical and temperate growing regions.  He is the founder of both Ecologia, LLC, edible & ecological landscape design in Frederick, MD and Project Bona Fide, an international non-profit based in Nicaragua that supports agro-ecology research.
