Edible Mushroom Growing Workshop with Tom Nagy

Back by popular demand!

June 15th, 2014 at 2pm.
Bait Un Noor Mosque (Ahmadiyya Muslim Community). 2301 King St. E at Pakdale, Hamilton ON

This event has been sponsored by Bait Un Noor (Ahmadiyya Muslim Community) and Greening Sacred Spaces at Environment Hamilton.

This event will consist of an approximately 1.5 hours powerpoint presentation and hands-on demonstration of the proper methods, techniques and materials necessary for successfully cultivating and propagating delicious, nutritious edible mushrooms out of easily accessable and/or waste materials. This will be followed by a brief question and answer period.

The two species that will be focused on are the oyster (Pleurotus spp.) and king stropharia (Stropharia rugosoannulata) mushrooms. Both are very aggressive and adaptable species that are great for beginning mushroom growers. Oyster mushrooms can be coaxed to grow in used coffee grinds, sawdust, wood chips or brewery grains and can be grown indoors straight through the winter. The king stropharia on the other hand prefers outdoor conditions and grows prolifically from hardwood mulch and sawdust.
