Mushroom Cultivation Workshop

IMG_3940.jpg
Join Travis Custer from San Juan Mycology, LLC for a hands on workshop on how to grow edible, culinary mushrooms at home. We will learn the fungi life cycle, their amazing role in ecology, how they build soil, and how to cultivate mushrooms at home. All ages welcome!

We will be making mushroom kits to take home so you can grow your own. The workshop costs $20 with home-grow mushroom kit or $15 without. UPDATE: Mushroom Kit SOLD OUT (but you can still attend without bringing home a mushroom kit)

Travis Custer has been involved in agriculture for the past 8 years focusing on the development of sustainable local food systems through permaculture, soil health, research and education. In 2010 and 2011 Travis spent time in Northern Nicaragua working on seed saving and permaculture projects. Most recently he has worked with business partner Gabe Deall to develop San Juan Mycology, a gourmet mushroom production company that also focuses on the use of fungi to clean up the environment; a field known as mycoremediation. Travis is currently working on a project with CSU extension and Ft. Lewis College to look at the use of fungi in cleaning up persistent herbicide contamination of agricultural soils. He also currently sits on the board of the Mancos Conservation District where he hopes to continue to advocate for young farmers and continued protection of local soil and water resources. Travis lives in Mancos, CO and is the proud father of a 3 year old boy named Eddy. He looks forward to continuing his life in the four corners growing food, teaching and advocating for healthy land and communities.
