The rise of Fungi

After years of being in the shadows, ignored and unloved, mushrooms are having a bit of a moment. Their hugely important role in ecology is now being realised and the applications of fungi from food to health supplements to building materials is ever increasing.

As mushrooms continue to become more popular, lots of people are now interested in the process of how to grow mushrooms. Mushrooms are the fruit of a family of organisms called fungi, a completely different life form to plants, in fact, some argue that fungi are more similar to us than they are to plants! Therefore growing mushrooms at home can pose new challenges even for experienced vegetable growers and green-thumbed gardeners.

We are delighted to offer an introductory session into growing fungi using simple yet effective techniques that can be learnt by anyone to have you eating your own crop of mushrooms in 4 or 5 weeks.
