March 8th @ AMC Monthly Meeting
Our guest this month will be Mark Jones of Sharondate Mushroom Farm. Mark's topic is Growing Fungi for Farm Diversity and Resilience. As our planet rapidly changes, we must find solutions to retain and build resilience in our agroecosystems. Explore our alliance with fungi which provides farmers opportunities to support and grow biodiversity, enhance ecosystem services, and provide food and medicine for our communities and the planet. We will discuss advanced techniques for mushroom growing and how to use mycelium as solutions to grow a regenerative agriculture.
Mark Jones is the owner and mycologist at Sharondale Mushroom Farm in Cismont, VA. Sharondale Farm provides high-quality mushrooms, spawn, tools and materials for mushroom cultivation. Mark offers cultivation workshops for hobby growers and small farmers.
