In this class, Pete Savoie shares his experience and passion for growing mushroom on logs and totems. Class participants will learn the nuances of mushroom growing and study the manner to which you can incorporate mushrooms into your own backyard.
Pete hails from southern New Hampshire, and fostered an early love for quality food ingredients while working in Boston’s fine dining industry. In 2010, he started a culinary mushroom farm on his 10 acre property after finding several wild varieties there; and, studying under David Wichland of Keene, NH, began to supply local farmer’s markets and restaurants with a wide variety of indoor and outdoor cultivated species. Pete relocated to Grass Lake, MI in 2014, and with Andrea Ericksen in 2017, founded Havenswood.
This is the final class for the fall series – check back in the spring for more mushroom fun! For more information on Havenswood check out their website at www.havenswood.org
