How to Grow Mushrooms
Story and photos by Scott Myers
Sasha Miller hosted Permaculture Akron’s August meet-up for an active demonstration of her Purplebrown Farm’s foray into growing edible mushrooms.
Shamelessly copying and pasting from Purplebrown’s Facebook page:
“Purplebrown Farmstead joined the Countryside Initiative Program in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in 2016. Our approach is to apply an intensive permaculture design process to develop a long term vision for these 12 acres. We are growing a resilient and productive food forest, including cider apples, diverse fruits & nuts, herbs, flowers, mushrooms, and livestock. We are host community events throughout the year, focused on community, permaculture, education and recreation.”
