Mushroom Cultivation

Tuesday, November 12th, 5pm-7pm

Have you ever wondered whether those daily items thoughtlessly thrown in the trash were really garbage? What if someone told you that your morning coffee grounds could be transformed into a gastronomic marvel? Much of 543282_302688419819252_1693818932_nwhat society considers trash can be re-purposed and used to  create something from nothing! Come out and meet a group of Concordia students who have in set out to learn how to turn coffee grounds into oyster mushrooms!  They will present their process and demonstrate how you too can grow Oyster mushrooms in your own home. This workshop will go over the basics of mushroom production and then we build home-growing chambers for everyone to take home.
