Shiitake Log Workshops

Each spring MushroomLife hosts a shiitake log cultivation workshop. We usually schedule this in March or April, after the danger of frost has passed. Check our Events page, or MushroomLife's facebook page, for updates on shiitake workshops.

Successful mushroom log cultivation depends on the type of wood chosen, the variety of shiitake utilized, placement of the logs, and watering schedules. Although many factors are at play, inoculating an average (5 inch diameter) log with shiitake plugs, means it will most likely produce mushrooms for at least 5 years to come!

Michael, an expert at log cultivation, can help guide anyone in their quest for shiitake success. And if you are out of the area, or don't want to wait until our spring classes, contact us to schedule a private consultation any time.
