Earth Day Attendees Reduce, Reuse And Grow Mushrooms

Earth Day Attendees Reduce,

Reuse And Grow Mushrooms

Earth Day puts the fun in fungus! Here, Chris Grady of Shady Grady Shiitake, right, Cooperstown, directs Fiona Dejardin and Sandy Andrews as they innoculate logs with shiitake mushroom spores. The spores are then sealed from parasites with a wax covering and the log placed outside in shade. The yield usually appears in 4-6 months. This was one of the many activities and workshops happening at Milford Central School this afternoon during the annual Earth Day celebration. Other activities included a recycled fashion show, yoga, Styrofoam collection, clothing swap, informational tables, workshops and local food vendors. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
