Bunker Bags full of Spawn!

Using an urban mushroom cultivation technique as taught by Paul Staments in Mycellium Running . We created bunker bags yesterday during the workday! Graze the Roof now has 9 bunker bags sprinkled throughout the garden. A bunker bag is a burlap sack filled with layers of pasteurized straw and sawdust bricks filled with mushroom spawn. In the photos look under the milk-crate raised beds to see our bunker bags nestled underneath the crates as a shade-loving understory.

Thank you to Four Barrel Coffee on Valencia St. in the Mission for the donation of burlap sacks and to Far West Fungi in Moss Landing for the donation of the mushroom bricks. And a BIG thank you to all the volunteers who came out to make it happen!
