We've been having a great time traveling around the state spreading the word about the accessibility of mushroom cultivation. In talking with everyone from enthusiastic Master Gardeners in Yuma to start-up cultivators in Phoenix, it's clear that there's a great deal of fungi-philia in our state. Here are some folks inoculating substrate with Phoenix Oyster spawn in Show Low:
So far we've had a great deal of success inoculating with this low-tech, non-sterile method. It's become a staple of our workshops and a way to get participants' hands dirty (in a manner of speaking of course - we don't want those grow bags to get contaminated!).
We've still got a few workshops with space available - Flagstaff (7/6) and Tucson (8/31). Sign up now before they're full!
