Fall harvest party

Help celebrate the season

Author: Thom
I have come under incredible pressure to host a fall harvest festival party for all of the permies and other friends in the area to be held at our farm, Footehills Farm, in Colbert. You can imagine how much it took for me to decide to do this as I tend to be a bit shy and a real homebody. So, let's do it! Potluck, byob, byos(mile), byod(ish). We will provide some meat, beer, wine, music, puns, and chairs. This year there will feature a new picnic table, benches and a firepit. The date is SUNDAY, OCTOBER 11 from, let's say, 2 until whenever. As always we will have room to overnight if needed. Please try to RSVP so we can get at least an idea of how many to expect. Of course, you are welcome to arrive earlier.
BTW, the pigs and chickens are all excited about the idea as is Chena the Wonderdog, head of farm security. She suggested I mention BYOD(dogbisquit).

Growing Edible/ Medicinal Mushrooms

Author: Heidiopolis

Hey everyone,

I am brand new to Spokane, and to the Spokane Permaculture site. Im happy to have found it :] I have been interested in growing edible/ medicinal mushrooms for a few years now. I just moved to Spokane this past winter, and do not have a lot of connections here yet. I am looking for free/ cheap sources of substrate, particularly hard wood chips, sawdust, and logs (oak, beech, alder, maple, etc) and straw of any kind (wheat, oat, rye, etc). I am also interested in connecting with other folks who are into mycology, whether it be foraging, cultivation, mycoremediation, etc.

Please respond if this is of any interest to you, and let me know what kind of connections/ resources you have!

Hope everyone's having an awesome spring :]
