Mushrooms are an excellent source of vegetarian protein and nutrition with the added bonus of “easy to grow”. Their health benefits are well known and their ecological advantages are just now being fully realized. Now you can learn basic fungal biology and how fungal mycelium colonizes different materials, particularly wooden logs, stumps, and wood chips. You’ll also discover the health benefits of different edible and medicinal fungi in Hawai‘i. Course fees are $55/$50 VAC members plus a $15 fee, inclusive of supplies. Each participant will depart with a shiitake mushroom log kit, as well as a King Stropharia mushroom kit. Participants will meet at VAC’s Niaulani Campus in Volcano Village for a slideshow lecture, then drive to Shaka Forest Farms on Wright Road in Volcano Village for the hands-on segment of the workshop. Lunch break will occur from 12pm – 1pm.  For more information and to register for the workshop, please call 808-967-8222 or visit www.volcanoartcenter.org.
