Saturday, November 3

You will receive an introduction / crash course in Fungi and Fungi cutivation!   There will be a demonstration of Oyster mushrooms cultivated in straw, this time using the hot water pasteurization method.

Hands-on grey oyster mushroom cultivation will follow where you will create your very own oyster mushroom grow kit to take home with you!  One ready-to-grow mushroom kit is included in the workshop, additional kits are available for $15 each as well (please reserve extra kits when registering.)

Additionally, there will be a tour of the inner workings of Deep Root Mushroom Farm to include the lab, incubation chamber and, of course, the "mush"room!


Mike Corse is owner/operator of Deep Root Mushroom Farm where he has been growing Shiitake and Oyster mushrooms since 2010.  Mike's offerings also include Lion's Mane, Almond Portobella, Wine Caps and the medicinal mushrooms Chaga and Reishi.
Deep Root Mushroom Farm is ever growing or "mushrooming" by introducing more mushroom varieties as part of his expansion into a new growing facility in Madrid, which will be toured as part of the workshop.
Currently Deep Root Mushroom Farm sells at the Canton and Potsdam Farmers Market, Nature's Storehouse in Canton, Jake's On The Water in Hannawa Falls, The 1844 House and Big Spoon Kitchen both in Potsdam.
Mike lives deep in the woods of Pierrepont, N.Y. on their off-grid homestead with his wife Maria, one dog, three cats and several billion mushroom spores.
