Annual Cultivation Meeting POSTPONED to a later date.

As we needed to order the mushroom spawn for the cultivation night we postponed the meeting to a later date in the year. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.

Here is a link to 23 video tutorials on mushroom cultivation from Field & Forest Products:

Original text: We’ll have kits for growing oyster mushrooms at home and most likely shiitake spawn for those who want to inoculate logs to take 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.
