Classes and Workshop Opportunities

Yes, you can grow shiitake mushrooms

Gourmet shiitake mushrooms displayed in grocery stores do not come close to matching the fresh, succulent mushrooms you’ll harvest if you grow your own. Plus, you won’t pay the $9 to $14 per pound commercial price. Although cultivating shiitake mushrooms takes a little time and planning, they can be easily produced on a small scale for personal use, much like vegetables in a home garden.

On April 13th 6 PM at the Red Barn next to the Marshall County Extension office. Please join Guest speaker David W. McGill Ph.D. Professor and Extension Specialist Forest Resources Management West Virginia University will be conducting a class on the proper techniques on get a successful harvest of mushrooms. Participants will receive an inoculated log of mushrooms at the end of the course to be able to start their very own mushrooms at home.

Preregistration is required.
Registration is due by April 1st and class size is limited. Cost for class is $15. Please make checks payable to WVU.
