Growing Edible/ Medicinal Mushrooms

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 :]
