Shiitake & Oyster Mushrooming:
Quiet Creek's Intensive Sustainability Seminars
The 2013 class was very successful! Check with us in April 2014 for our next Shiitake & Oyster Mushrooming Intensive!
Discover the key concepts of growing, harvesting, preserving, and cooking Shiitake and Oyster Mushrooms, as well as using them for medicine. For seventeen years, Quiet Creek Herb Farm & School of Country Living has been offering workshops on sustainable living – mushrooms are an exciting part of our mission.
Claire and Rusty Orner, owners and stewards of Quiet Creek (a non-profit farm), will incorporate Quiet Creek’s model by teaching you how to master your mushroom passion to benefit your diet and health. The theory of mushroom growing, harvesting, preserving, cooking, and medicinal use will be applied in hands-on classes which will stimulate your intellect, your taste buds, and your do-it-yourself know-how. In addition to formal classes, the following optional activities are available for those interested: mountain biking (bikes & helmets provided), hiking, journaling, Sunday worship, and a community music circle (feel free to bring your own instruments!)
Over the weekend, you will enjoy a unique immersion experience as you absorb all the beauty and knowledge that Quiet Creek has to offer. Quiet Creek is an alcohol and smoke free environment with lodging that is rustic and primitive; accommodations on the farm will be based upon registration numbers and may include a yurt, a renovated barn, and/or tents. Delicious, locally and sustainably raised meals will be provided throughout the three days, and food preferences will be honored. All energy needed for the weekend will be produced on site with the solar array and wind turbine, and all waste produced on site will be composted!
Cost: $275 which includes three relaxing days and two nights with practical experience and knowledge to put Shiitake and Oyster mushrooming at your location, take home goodies, 6 whole food meals, and creative lodging. Please note that we will offer PASA members a $20 discount on registration. Attention: This workshop is limited to 20 students, so sign up early.
