Mycologist Romain B. Picasso leads a workshop on the basics of mushroom cultivation at the Civic Garden Center. Mushrooms grow from spores, not seeds, so this class will teach you how to build a mushroom laboratory, using both sterile and non-sterile inoculant for propagation. You’ll also do hands-on activities including making spore prints, wax-based inoculants and jar cultures. Each participant will leave the class with materials to start their own fungi garden at home. 

9-11 a.m. $20; $10 for Civic Garden Center volunteers. Civic Garden Center, 2715 Reading Road, Clifton, civicgardencenter.org
