CHARLESTON — Make a plan to attend the hands-on shiitake mushroom log cultivation workshop using local hardwood 1-3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24, at the South Slough. The workshop will cover the tools needed and instructions for how to successfully grow gourmet food and medicine. Fungi have an important role in the forest as decomposers, and people can mimic that role in their backyards and gardens.
This simple method and the various mushrooms that can be grown will be discussed. Participants will make their very own log to take home. For more information or to register, visit southsloughestuary.org. Class size will be limited and the fee is $20 per person per log.
Unless otherwise noted, all programs begin at the South Slough Reserve Interpretive Center, located 4 miles south of Charleston on Seven Devils Road. Reservations are required for all programs. Programs may be cancelled due to low enrollment or hazardous weather. Activity fees and donations cover materials and are used by the Friends of South Slough Reserve, Inc. in support of the Reserve. The Interpretive Center is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. All cancellations must be received 48 hours prior to the start of a program to receive a refund.
