Workshop Session: Saturday I

Cultivate mushrooms for yourself or your business by starting with these five foolproof mushrooms in a basic, year-round indoor grow space, plus seven more to grow seasonally outdoors. We’ll cover materials selection, handling, grow space construction, harvest tips, yield estimation, and pricing, using realistic production goals based on our working organic mushroom farm.

Mary Ellen Kozak and Joe Krawczyk co-own Field and Forest Products, a global mushroom spawn company based in Wisconsin. They have written numerous publications on specialty mushroom cultivation and have been involved with certified organic mushroom production since the late 1980s when they prepared the national guidelines for certified organic mushroom production.
