Today's Lecture: Mushrooms in Your Garden
Yvonne Stephens has been cultivating shiitake mushrooms since 2007. She demonstrates various ways to get started growing shiitake, oyster and wine cap mushrooms in your own backyard.
These mushrooms are a great source of protein and other nutrients, and are a fun addition to a home garden.
Yvonne is the Event Coordinator for ISLAND, a small arts and ecology non-profit organization in Bellaire. ISLAND holds workshops year round on mushroom cultivation, food, farming, and more.
