Digging Deeper: Cultivating Edible Mushrooms: A Mushroom Inoculation Workshop

The Shapson Garden

Sat, May 6 to Sun, May 7, 2023

The 2023 Open Days events in the Milwaukee area are presented in partnership with the Garden Club of Greater Milwaukee.  


This Digging Deeper event with wild mushroom foragers, Steve Shapson and MJ Jansen, introduces you to the world of cultivating mushrooms. Besides learning about mushrooms, you will be participating in a workshop where you will inoculate specially harvested logs with shiitake, oyster, and chestnut mushrooms spawn as part of an assembly-line process.


The price of the workshop includes one of each type of log with the option to purchase additional logs. Your logs can be placed in a shady spot on your property or integrated into a shade border. Complete written instructions for taking care of your logs, along with other information about cultivated and wild mushrooms, will be provided as part of the workshop.

This Digging Deeper is not appropriate for children under the age of 15.


After registration, a link to purchase additional logs for inoculation will be provided.  Please check your confirmation email for details.
