About The Event
Join us for a FREE Grow Your Own virtual workshop focusing on growing organic mushrooms at high altitude taught by Master Gardener, Marissa Streck. As many of us know, high elevation gardening is tricky! Enjoy instruction from an expert who will cover planting, harvesting, pest management, river/lake friendly gardening techniques, biology discussions, and information on the history of this group of food crops.
You MUST pre-register for the free virtual workshop by reserving a ticket below. If you are unable to attend the live workshop you can still register to purchase starter plants. The virtual workshop will be recorded and posted on this site to watch at a later time.
In addition, a mushroom growing kit is available for $15 for pick-up in Truckee, Tahoe City, or South Lake on the Saturday morning following the class, 9am-11am. Pay in advance to reserve your kit AND help support the future of the Grow Your Own Program. Purchase one kit and receive Blue Oyster mushrooms, purchase two kits and receive Pearl mushrooms too. Thank you to Tahoe Mushroom Company for providing the kits!
Participants growing the provided starts will be sent a brief end of season growing survey to help identify successful varieties for the difficult Truckee/Tahoe climate.
The Grow Your Own workshop series is brought to you by the UCCE Master Gardeners of Lake Tahoe, UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center, and Slow Food Lake Tahoe. We appreciate your support of our programs!
