Growing Mushrooms Outdoors (Shiitake, Oyster & Wine Cap) - 90 min Intensive Online Workshop with Mark Gostkiewicz from Tri Gable Lea Farm LLC

During this Zoom Webinar/Class, you will be able to type questions and chat with other participants while Mark presents. If needed, you can "raise your hand" and Mark can allow you to talk to the class and ask a clarifying question that can help to deepen everyone's learning. Please register to receive your Zoom invitation.

Following the class, Mark will email you more information to get you going .These will include links to products that are both economical but of good quality and a multipage handout with links and notes from class! You can also reply back with questions and Mark will try his best to be your mushroom mentor and point you in the right direction.
