Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve


Annual Cultivation Meeting
Rebecca Miller & John Kosmal

We’ll have kits for growing oyster mushrooms at home and shiitake spawn for those who want to inoculate logs to take home.  Bring your own logs.  Suitable logs are 4 to 6- inch diameter and up to 4 feet long; a length of 40 inches is ideal.  Any species of oak and most of the maples are suitable for growing shiitake.  Wood that’s been freshly cut this winter or early spring while still dormant has the best chance of success.  WPMC will supply shiitake spawn.  Drills and a work station will be set up. John Kosmal will supervise the process and help those who haven’t inoculated logs before.  Rebecca Miller will give a brief presentation with instructions for handling your kit and growing mushrooms at home.  Kits are available for club members only.  New members are welcome to join at the start of the evening meeting.

Sometimes the address and location information for a meeting point is not 100% accurate. Some parks and meeting point do not have a street address so it is difficult to program the map to point to the exact location.

We request that no one hunts a walk or foray location for at least two weeks prior to a walk or foray. It is only through your cooperation that we can have successful walks and forays. All walks & forays will be held rain or shine. Come 15-30 min early and socialize. All walks start on time, so be early, if you are late we will already be in the woods. You can find last minute additions or changes by going to our Facebook Group.
