About The Event

Grow your own gourmet and medicinal mushrooms!

Come join us March 17th and learn how to inoculate logs with various species of delicious and health promoting mushrooms. We will start the day with an interactive educational lecture, and then progress to a hands on demonstration where you'll get to actually inoculate logs and learn the finer points.

This workshop will be ran by Tim Hensley. Tim Hensley has been a mushroom farmer & wildcrafter for 20 years, and is the Lexington restaurant scene's primary provider of gourmet wild fungi. He and his wife Jane Post's organic farming operation and retreat center outside of Berea has been feeding, nurturing & educating their extended community for some time, and Tim has been a well received guest speaker at many events in the area. For more on their farm & workshop/retreat offerings, please see their website: www.ForestRetreats.net.

We'll inoculate various species including Shiitake, Maitake, Oyster, Lion's mane, and many others. You'll also enjoy a gourmet lunch including the specific species of mushrooms we are inoculating with.

This is an incredible experience with very limited availability. You'll leave with your very own fully inoculated log that will hopefully produce mushrooms for you up to a decade.
