There’s Fungus Among Us!

Hey all,

With our Fall crops in the ground growing away and the weather starting to turn cold and wet, it is a good time to start some indoor projects. Last week we harvested and begun drying our persimmons to make delicious hoshigaki in our dome, the sheds are getting cleaned and organized, and this week we begin propagating mushrooms!

Scripps professor Nancy Auerbach will be leading us this Friday at 2pm as we make the first oyster mushroom bags of the Winter. Did you know you can grow mushrooms on scraps of newspaper, egg cartons, and even old jeans? Come learn about the process of cultivating the yummy fungus by attending our Growing Oyster Mushrooms Workshop.

This week we will also be having our Farm Stand at 4pm on Walker Beach. Come buy some fresh and organic produce grown on your very own campus! We will be selling persimmons, sapotes, pineapple guavas, and more from our farm as well as from Huerta del Valle. Make sure to pick up a Farm sweater for these frigid California nights as well!
