Sourcing Shiitake Bolts (logs) Webinar: Join us or watch it from home  
Wednesday, July 19, 2017, 12:00pm - 01:00pm

Cost:      Free

Growing shiitakes mushrooms is a viable opportunity for those interested in generating income from their woodlands. Part of shiitake production depends on a consistent supply of appropriate species “bolts”, which are logs small enough in diameter and length to accommodate shiitake production. An informational webinar will be presented on July 19 to cover the basic requirements that both sellers and buyers should know before entering a transaction, including appropriate species, quality, timing, pricing, and other considerations.

Staff members who have been involved in a grant to promote shiitake production will be hosting the webinar for those who wish to have a conversation about information presented. You may view the webinar and conversation from your home computer as well.

Note: If you are interested in viewing the webinar at home, we will be sharing the log-in information, when it is available.
