Cape May Court House – Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cape May County Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources will hold the workshop, “Growing Gourmet Mushrooms at Home,” on Thursday, October 13, 2022, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Rutgers Cooperative Extension, 355 Courthouse – South Dennis Road, Cape May Court House, NJ 08210.
This workshop marks the return of the Garden & Grow in-person series. The goal of the series is to teach locals how to improve or expand their home gardens in new ways.
The presenter will be Lin Conover, Owner of Wood Song Mushrooms and grower of gourmet mushrooms including Oyster Mushrooms and Reishi since 2017. Participants of the workshop will learn the basic types of mushrooms, key characteristics, eco-functions, and how to grow cultivated mushrooms. There will be a hands-on portion where participants will learn how to prepare and care for an Oyster Mushroom Farm and will also get one to take home.
“The amazing Fungi Kingdom is full of myths, mysteries, and marvels. My interest in growing mushrooms was spurred on by the value of mushrooms as an alternative protein source and their many health benefits,” said Conover.
This is a beginner class; therefore, no experience is needed. The cost for this workshop is $15. Since the class is limited to 25 people, please register in advance and bring cash or a $15 check with you to the workshop on October 13th. Registration is now open at https://go.rutgers.edu/94g0j9d3
