Shiitake Mushroom Logs In Your Yard

Saturday June 17th 1:00PM – 3:00PM

Home Grown Community Garden Workshop

3000 E 20th St Kansas City Mo.

This is a Free workshop where you will learn about Shiitake Mushroom production on logs in a shady spot in your yard. You will learn which logs are compatible with growing Shiitake mushrooms and how to use sawdust spawn, the most economical method, to inoculate oak logs.

Shiitake mushrooms are a popular variety familiar to a growing number of local and gourmand food enthusiastic. You can purchase bulk Shiitake and other mushrooms at Kansas City HyVee and Price Chopper Grocers. The retail selling price is $9.00 – $16.00 per pound. You can grow your own and make productive use of Kansas City’s Urban Forest Products, tree trimming in your yard or neighborhood.

 We will inoculate logs for the Community Garden and interested neighbors. A limited number of logs and spawn kits will be available for participants (see order link).

Oaks logs 3”- 8” diameter about 40” long are best. Other local tree species that can be used are: hornbeam, ironwood, hard maple, and sweet gum.

 We recommend the online resource  for growing Shiitakes.
