Due to a scheduling conflict we have changed the date of our new workshop in Flagstaff. Rather than holding the workshop on June 6th we have changed the date to June 27th. We still have a few spots left, so if you were unable to attend on the original date, maybe this one will better suit you!
This workshop will build upon our original workshop, Fundamentals of Small-Scale Mushroom Production. We'll be focusing on some of the research done on substrates with respect to different mushroom species, techniques of low-tech, low resource pasteurization and other practical aspects of growing mushrooms in Arizona. You can register here. See you in Flagstaff!
Thanks to everyone who came out for our workshop in Sierra Vista this past Wednesday! We've traveled with this workshop all across the state over the last couple of years, and it's still a great pleasure to meet and interact with people who are excited about growing mushrooms.
Along with the lecture portion of the workshop, we successfully bulk-inoculated 32 grow bags with Pearl Oyster spawn, which participants took home to fruit out for themselves. Everyone at the workshop also performed a culture transfer of Blue Oyster mycelium and left with their own petri dish of culture.
We hope that the workshop has inspired people to get started growing mushrooms! Keep in mind that the AZMGA is here to help in any way that we can—whether its providing grow bags and spawn or informational resources to guide you through the grow process. You can also always contact us with specific questions, photos of your grow operation, or just anecdotes about successes and not-exactly-successes that you've experienced cultivating mushrooms. We look forward to hearing from you!
