What a great event we had today! Twenty-six people - some member-owners and some not-yet member-owners - visited the home of Co-op Board President Alison Fritz (and yours truly) for an instructional session on how to make your own mushroom log. Instructor Rich Meyers led the group through a brief history of mushroom cultivation and the science behind how mushrooms work. Then he turned us loose with mallets, hammers, hole-filled logs and mushroom mycelia-infected wooden dowels. After a half hour or so of hammering away (wonder what my neighbors thought was happen), we stepped into the backyard where Rich guided us through sealing off the holes with melted candles and crayons. This is to prevent the mycelia from drying out while it spawns and eats the log from inside. I uploaded some selected photos of the event to our Facebook page. No need to be a Facebook member or fan of our page to see them. Just click on this link. (But, hey, while your there, consider "Liking" our page.) Thanks again to Rich Meyers and everyone who came by today. Oh... yeah... and one more member-owner signed up at today's event! That's one closer to our first goal!
All are welcome! You don't have to be a member to shop.
