Virginia Mushroom Project Workshop

Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms

Learn how to grow several different types of specialty mushrooms using low-tech, low-cost methods in your garden or woodlot. Discussions will include biology and ecology of fungi in agriculture, using mushrooms for personal and ecological health, and methods for cultivating shiitake, oyster, lion’s mane, reishi, and other mushrooms in wood, straw, and compost, harvesting, and marketing. Hands-on mushroom log activity will prepare you to grow your own! Opportunities for free mushroom spawn are available when you participate in our citizen science research!

Mark Jones is the owner and mycologist of Sharondale Mushroom Farm in Cismont, Va., which grows the highest quality certified organic mushrooms and organic mushroom spawn. Marcus Comer is a VSU Agriculture and Natural Resources Extension Specialist.
