Shiitake Log Workshop


Flush of shiitake mushrooms at B&R Nursery in the spring of 2014

Ever wondered how mushrooms grow?  Come out and experience shiitake mushroom log cultivation with Jonas and Salem at Bread & Roses Nursery.  We won’t just be talking all about mycelium, hyphae, spores, and spawn–at B&R Nursery we believe that learning should be hands-on.  All participants will learn how to inoculate hardwood logs with shiitake spawn and about the methods of mushroom production at home.  Best of all, you’ll get to take home your very own log at the end of the day!

The Details:

When: Saturday, November 14th,  11am to 3pm

*Rain Date Sunday, November 15th*

Where: Bread & Roses Nursery, 9127 S Roberts Rd, Bloomington

Cost: $45/person

Please RSVP or send inquiries to

Participation fee includes your own shiitake log (retail value $25) and light refreshments.  Limit of 20 participants.  Some trade positions are available.  The workshop will be conducted outdoors, so please dress appropriately. We will have a fire going to keep folks warm!  Please RSVP by Wednesday 11/11.
