Mushroom Cultivation Workshop | Oxbow Workshop

May 21, 2023 @ 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM


Join Ben Jaffe of Marrowstone Mushrooms to make your own straw-based, oyster mushrooms grow kit! This is a hands-on activity where you will learn about mushroom cultivation, the production of spawn and substrate, and make your own grow kit so that you can watch the incubation and fruiting process at home. You’ll also learn about mushroom gardening, principals of mushroom identification, and pretty much all things mushroom.

Open to all ages!

Benjamin Jaffe is the owner of Marrowstone Mushrooms – located in the heart of Capital Hill, Seattle. They supply the local community with a variety of fresh mushrooms for sale, as well as mushroom tinctures, extracts, spawn, and even mushroom grow kits.

*Please note when registering that you can attend the workshop with a donation of any amount, but it you want to take home a grow kit it is $20. Thank you!

Oxbow Workshops were born out of a hope to create accessible learning and connection opportunities for our whole community— this is why many of our workshops, including this one, are by donation or sliding scale.

Oxbow has accessible parking and restrooms. If you have specific questions about accessibility, please reach out at events@oxbow.org.

What to wear and bring
The terrain around Oxbow can be uneven; we recommend wearing sturdy shoes or boots. Dress for the weather and be prepared to walk and explore! For food, beverage, and Farm Stand purchases, we accept all major credit cards.

Come camera-ready for all the opportunities to document your memories at Oxbow and use the gorgeous backdrop scenery of an organic farm in the Snoqualmie Valley.
