The upcoming “Just Add Water” Oyster Mushroom Cultivation Workshop, hosted by Sam Landes of the Georgia Mushroom Club, promises a hands-on experience for Atlanta residents interested in home mushroom cultivation. Scheduled for June 9 at Elsewhere Brewing in Grant Park, this workshop teaches an accessible method for growing oyster mushrooms without the labor-intensive sterilization process.

Sam Landes, a retired Montessori teacher and longtime mushroom enthusiast, will lead the session. Participants will receive all necessary supplies and detailed instructions to take home. The workshop also includes one complimentary beverage, making it a fun and educational activity for families. The event, held from 10:30 AM to 12 PM, aims to share Landes’ extensive knowledge and passion for fungi with the community.
