Start spring early with a dive into the fungal kingdom with instructor Willie Crosby , as he teaches a workshop on how to inoculate logs, wood chips and stumps for mushroom cultivation in your backyard.

Learn the basic information everyone should know about fungi and get hands-on experience doing these easy-to-replicate growing methods. By the end of class, you will be familiar with six different wild mushroom species, and three cultivation techniques and have loads of new fungal lore to share with your friends.

Willie Crosby is the owner of Fungi Ally. He has been growing mushrooms indoors and outdoors for over 10 years. Willie works to reveal the power of mushrooms by educating people how to incorporate mushrooms into their gardens and lives.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
