Due to the public health concern caused by the COVID-19 virus, UNH administration made the decision to cancel all UNH Cooperative Extension events, programs and noncredit classes through April 5. The health and safety of our staff and the many members of our New Hampshire communities that participate in our programs is most important. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this uncertain time.

About the Program

This will be an interactive workshop beginning with a tree identification walk, allowing participants to learn how to select appropriate trees for cutting mushroom logs. This portion of the workshop will be led by Dode Gladders, Forestry Field Specialist for Sullivan County Extension.

The second portion of the evening will focus on the process of inoculating logs for shiitake production, as well as, handling of the logs in anticipation of harvest. All necessary supplies will be provided and participants will take home the log that they inoculate during the workshop. Jeremy DeLisle, Food and Agriculture Specialist for Merrimack County Extension, will lead this portion of the workshop.

This workshop will be capped at 20 participants, so register early to reserve your spot. For specific questions regarding the workshop topics or for persons with disabilities requiring special accommodations, please contact Jeremy DeLisle at 603-796-2151 or prior to the event.
