Learn from an Expert! We run one day Mushroom Cultivation courses that give you the knowledge and skills you need to grow a variety of Gourmet Mushrooms at home or in the garden, allotment, smallholding, woodland or permaculture plot. The days are aimed at anyone with an interest, and no previous experience is necessary.

We will focus on learning how to grow a variety of Gourmet Mushrooms using a few simple methods, and without the need for expensive equipment. The aim is to enable participants to take what they have learnt and put it into practice within the space that they have available - from a city flat to a five acre woodland. We believe the cultivation of Fungi is vastly under- utilised in most gardening and food growing systems, and hope that this course will inspire you to give it a go. The day will include:

  • An introduction to Fungi in the wild and the cultivation of Mushrooms
  • A short guided tour of our growing operation
  • A detailed session about Growing Mushrooms on Logs
  • Lunch, cooked with our own Gourmet Mushrooms
  • A detailed session about Growing Mushrooms on Straw and waste Paper
  • A detailed session about how to create a woodchip Mushroom bed, and companion planting with particular mushroom species
  • A round-up to conclude what we have learnt

Participants will take home course notes, plus a mushroom log and a bag of straw they have just inoculated. The cost, to cover all this plus lunch and tuition will be £60.
