Joined a couple of friends for some log cultivation work this morning. We inoculated several oak and poplar logs with Ganoderma lucidum (reishi) and installed them in a patch of forest.
Mycelium on hemp hurd was used as the inoculum and the holes were sealed with beeswax.
Installation site was chosen based on shade and ambient temperature (a degree or two cooler than the exposed areas of hillside - at least subjectively).
Logs partially buried to wick moisture from the soil.
Merveilles is a community project aimed at the establishment of new ways of speaking, seeing and organizing information — A culture that seeks augmentation through the arts of engineering and design. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
