Explore your love of food at Eden Hall.
Food is a treat for the senses, but we find it to be just as stimulating for the mind. Join us at any or all of our upcoming food workshops – covering topics like bread baking, mushroom cultivation and production, chocolate, coffee, fermentation, the apple harvest, and more – to learn the techniques of food preparation and production. What you'll learn will turn your appreciation into so much more.
Join Tony Miga from the Falk School of Sustainability & Environment for a workshop all about shiitake mushrooms. Workshop participants will get hands-on experience inoculating logs and each person will receive a mushroom log to take home. All aspects of growing shiitake mushrooms will be covered. The workshop is appropriate for anyone interested in cultivating shiitakes from a backyard scale to a small commercial operation. There will be ample opportunities to discuss, ask questions, and network with other folks in the region interested in the exciting world of mycology.
