Event Description

Several Scarlet Oak Trees were removed for the Roosevelt light rail station, and the logs have been donated to the Freeway Estates Orchard for inoculating with mushroom spores.   With your help, the 100 or so logs will be filled with mycelium spawn and will live on in your yard.

We will ask for a moderate cash donation to recover our costs. The amount will vary depending on which option you choose:

1) pick up a log and take it home,

2) do your own inoculation on-site, or

3) have a mushroom coach inoculate a log for you.

 

As a bonus, 25 educational oyster mushroom growing kits will be available for kids to assemble. These will be free but on a first come first serve basis.

 

If donations exceed our costs they will benefit Freeway Estates Community Orchard and the Roosevelt Neighborhood Association.

 

Please bring a cordless drill, a 12mm drill bit, toothbrush and gloves. Check the RNA website closer to the date to confirm necessary materials! (http://rooseveltseattle.org/).

 

Instructions will be provided for the care of your mushroom logs.
