Description:

Suitable for beginners and intermediate mushroom growers.

Bringing fresh new energy and innovation in the sustainable food movement. Mushrooms connect humanity directly to the immune system of nature. Allowing plants to exchange important nutrients, creating ecosystems that are more resilient to pests, drought and toxic wastes. Which is increasingly important given the pressures of climate change and plastic waste on which the eco-systems society ultimately depends. Mycelium (mushrooms) turn toxic waste (oil, plastic and synthetic chemicals) into harmless biological food for the wider ecosystem.

This hands-on workshop will teach the principles of mushroom/mycelium growing and introduce you to the skills you need to start growing your favourite mushrooms at home. We'll be running through basic mycology and inoculation, working with Oyster, Lions Mane and Reishi mushrooms.

We'll be making a delicious mushroom stir-fry for lunch and a grazing table of produce from the gardens to snack on throughout the workshop with time for a great chat about all things mycology.

We will also be teaching you how to grow mushrooms on South facing balcony and in the garden!

At the end of the workshop, we'll be sending you home with a kit to start your own mushroom growing adventure.
