Matariki Mushrooms Workshop - Food Resilience with Fungi

Saturday 1st June 2024


At our introductory-level mushroom growing workshop you will learn how to grow your own mushrooms at home as well as how to continue your own spawn batches so you can continue to produce mushrooms on a homescale at a very low cost.

The workshop is run in two parts. We will begin with a presentation where we describe the ecology of fungi and talk about the home-scale growing method focused on in this workshop. Followed by a short tea break, we proceed to the practical part of the workshop, where you will make your own mushroom grow kits and spawn to take home.

Mushrooms are a high-protein food, which are quick to grow on easily available materials (you will have your first harvest within 4 weeks) and as such are a fabulous emergency food and can help stretch your grocery budget. Using the method we will teach, you can grow your own gourmet mushrooms at little cost with basic materials.
