Learn to grow mushrooms in a log

Written by 

out mushroomsLearn to grow shiitake mushrooms from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25, at the Macon County Environmental Resource Center in Franklin.

Offered by the North Carolina Cooperative Extension, the “Growing Shiitake Mushrooms” this hands-on class is geared to hobby growers. Each participant should bring two hardwood logs (oak is preferred; no walnut or locust), 4 to 6 inches in diameter and 3 to 4 feet long. The logs should be fresh cut. A classroom session will explain Shiitake growing and participants will then drill their logs and inoculate them with Shiitake mushroom “seed.” Participants will leave the class with two inoculated Shiitake logs and the ability to inoculate more. Most of the program will be outside. Extra logs would be appreciated and used to build a Shiitake demonstration area at the Environmental Resource Center. Pre-registration is required. A $10 materials fee is due at registration. Register at the Macon County Cooperative Extension Center by Friday, Feb. 21.

The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
