Announcing Winter 2021 Mushroom Workshops!
Learn how to grow shiitake mushrooms in your own backyard! We will be hosting FOUR Mushroom Inoculation workshops this winter—we’ll teach you how to prepare and inoculate your own log, promote mushroom growth, proper storage of your inoculated logs, when and how to harvest, and more! All materials will be provided on site and you’ll go home with your very own inoculated shiitake mushroom log! Come prepared to get dirty and spend the entire time outside together. Masks and social distancing is required at all times! Use the links below to register!
Winter EE Workshop Series!
Are you looking for opportunities to attend Environmental Education Workshops this Winter? Well look no further, friend! The Eno River Association and the Hub Farm will be hosting an EE Winter Workshop series consisting of three socially-distanced outdoor workshops! Choose between socially-distanced outdoor games, nature journaling, or bird watching. Each workshop will explore a variety of ways to incorporate outdoor learning into your classroom curricula. Be prepared for cold weather and wear a mask, hat, gloves, and layers to stay warm, as all three workshops will be taught outdoors, following COVID-19 protocol. All workshops are eligible for NCEE Criteria II credit, and will be held at the DPS Hub Farm (117 Milton Rd., Durham, NC 27712). Rain dates are included in the case of inclement weather.
