Mushroom Workshop at Open Minded Organics

Something's growing at Open Minded Organics in Bridgehampton, which will host a mushroom-growing class this weekend.

David Falkowski, the proprietor of Open Minded Organics on Butter Lane in Bridgehampton, will share some of the mysteries of mushroom cultivation in a half-day workshop on Sunday. A Saturday session has sold out.

The program will begin at 8:30 a.m. with a tour of the farm and a discussion of basic mycology and indoor and outdoor growing techniques. Next, participants will get started on a take-home shitake mushroom log.

A light gluten-free lunch and question-and-answer session follows. The cost is $100; registration is at or 631-255-0990. The class will take place rain or shine. Those attending have been asked to wear clean work clothes and expect to get dirty.

The Open Minded Organics farmstand at 720 Butter Lane will open for the season on Saturday.
