We will discuss and demonstrate a number of low-tech growing methods including totem stacks which fruit in just 3 months for Oyster and 6-12 months for Lion Mane varieties , Shitake log cultivation, and wine cap companion planting. Each participant may take home a shitake log. By learning these simple techniques participants will be able to cultivate a
wide variety of gourmet and medicinal species.  There may be logs/totems or other materials available for purchase at the event. 

About the presenter:  Dan Bensonoff began his mycelial adventures as a child while foraging with his grandparents in the woodlands of CT.  Through his interest in ecology and local food production, he became attuned to the virtues of mushroom cultivation. Currently Dan lives in Roslindale and works as education events coordinator and policy director with the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA/Mass).
