August Mushroom Webinar to Cover Low-Impact Outdoor Growing

The next installment of the Cornell Small Farms Program’s specialty mushroom project’s ongoing monthly webinar series is coming up on August 7 and will be held at 6 p.m. EST.

Click here to sign up for the free webinars.

During our August webinar, learn about the ways mushroom can help solve complex social and environmental challenges facing both urban and rural communities from Yolanda Gonzalez of CCE Harvest NY and Steve Gabriel with the Cornell Small Farms Program.

The second half of the webinar will explore the efficacy of low-impact outdoor mushroom farming with Jesse Marksohn of Fungal Forest. Jesse will gloss over some of environmental impacts of conventional specialty mushroom farming, the experiences and mentors that allowed his methods to form, and how this system could be improved upon and replicated.

Our specialty mushroom project supports new and existing mushroom growers in all aspects of production, marketing, and sales through ongoing research and education efforts. Learn more about the project’s efforts on CornellMushrooms.org. Here you will also find factsheets, videos, and free guidebooks as well as a directory of suppliers and a grower network email list.

These free webinars occur on the first Wednesday of each month, and will be recorded and posted for later viewing on the Cornell Small Farms Program’s YouTube channel. You can watch last month’s webinar below:
