Hands on workshop on making an experimental 'fun-guy(fungi)-kit
Together with Natalia Borissova there will be the chance to get your own non-green-garden done within an afternoon.
Intrigued by the prospect of pro-creating your very own mushrooms, but daunted by all the talk about contamination and sterile procedures, or bored with the standard 'Mushroom Growing Kits' offered on the market? Same here! There for/there are: some non-sterile methods and simple procedures, fast-to-grow varieties, experimental substrates and mediums will be handed-on at the
session, that you can take home a bunch of 'objects' and 'subjects' for your potential non-green-garden at home, yard and any other in/outdoor habitat.
'What Leaf? What Mushroom?'
Non-sterile low-tek, low-work methods and techniques of inoculation
Nutrient mediums and substrates recipes
Environments and conditions
Experimental kits making
What to bring along:
Try looking around the house/yard collect and bring along some items that can be used for mushroom cultivation
::::::::as a substrates (The food or "soil" for the mushroom):::::::::::::
Used coffee grounds and tea bags
white bread (can be old and in slices
socoa shell waste
shredding from the office
sawdust/woodchips (hardwood is best)
::::::::as a casing/cultivator jar:::::::::::::
corrugated cardboard folders
old cotton clothes
toilet paper (clean;) & towel rolls..
Think of some other cellulose-rich materials. Experimenting with substrates and 'casings' are part of the fun of growing your very own mushrooms on something unexpected.
