Event description

Mushrooms have been growing wild since prehistoric times. Their therapeutic value has been prized in indigenous cultures, for thousands of years. They play a critical role in medicinal practice and were noted in some of the first books on herbal medicine written thousands of years ago.

In the past few decades, mushrooms have become more popular for their therapeutic qualities in the west as a result of an expanding body of scientific research supporting their numerous health benefits.

Come and learn the basics of mushroom cultivation using grain, coffee and straw. Explore these various techniques for growing gourmet and medicinal mushrooms such as Oyster, Reishi and Shiitake mushrooms.

This will be a hands on experience we will cover everything you need to know to get you started.
