Forest Farming workshop

If you have an interest in forest farming and would like to explore the possibility of using your woodland property, no matter how small or large, to cultivate non timber products then you will definitely want to take this workshop. Ken Mudge will introduce you to the growing field of forest farming followed by an overview of non timber forest products, including cultivation of mushrooms. Site considerations (infrastructure, resource management) and site assessment and design will be covered indoors followed by an on-site assessment of a woodland on Holden?s property. Each participant will get the chance to inoculate a log with mushroom spores to take home. Lunch is included in the fee.

To register go to holdenarb.org or call 440-602-3833 NAT522 Ken Mudge, associate professor of horticulture at Cornell University conducts workshops, on-line education programs and extensive research in the field of agroforestry in order to enhance rural economic development. Much of this work takes place at MacDaniels Nut Grove http://www.hort.cornell.edu/mng/, an agroforestry research and education/demonstration center to the Cornell campus, developed in conjunction with the Department of Natural Resources and Cornell Plantations.

Cost is $50.
