COSHOCTON -- By popular demand the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is offering a "Grow Your Own Mushroom" class on March 17 at 2 p.m.
Todd Malenke, a fungi enthusiast, will teach you all you need to know to grow Shiitake mushrooms. Good news, you don't need a dank basement or a backyard forest to grow delicious mushrooms. After discussing the basics of mushroom cultivation, Todd will help participants inoculate a log to take home. Malenke has been cultivating and eating Shiitake, Oyster and Wine-cap Stropharia for years. Participants will be given a log, 40-50 spore plugs, and wax. They are encouraged to bring their own drills --a few 5/16th bits will be available for use. Workshop fee is $20 ($5 off for Friends of the Museum). Advanced paid reservation required. Admission limited to 10.
To register, contact the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum at 740-622-8710 or stop by the museum from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is located at 300 N. Whitewoman St. in Roscoe Village, Coshocton.
