The program is from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday at Sprouting Farms Appalachian Croft, Resource and Training Center in Talcott. Indoor and outdoor growing methods for culinary mushroom will be covered.

Extension Agent Brad Cochran says either in hardwood forests or at an indoor production site, opportunities are strong for mushroom production in West Virginia.
