Mushroom Workshop and Redbery Storytime

It was a busy week at the Cable Community Farm!  On Wednesday, we hosted a presentation about growing mushrooms that was put on by the Cable Natural History Museum.  Our experts, Joe and Mary Ellen, helped us innoculate oyster mushrooms into toilet paper rolls and shitaake mushrooms onto logs!  They have a fantastic website with supplies to grow your own mushrooms:  www.fieldforest.net.  It’s easier than you might think!

At Redbery Storytime, we ready books about organic gardening, “mean green beans”, and tractors, sang vegetable songs, dug a few potatoes, and shared gardening jokes.  (What do you call it when worms take over the world?  global worming!).  A wonderful time was had by the kids and their grownups!
