Online Workshop: Grown Your Own Mushrooms with FungALL for 16-25 year olds

26th April 18:00 to 19:30
Grow your own culinary mushrooms at home with FungALL and discover how to transform your household waste into edible mushrooms!

Taking a more sustainable approach to food is one of the easiest and most impactful choices you can make in your everyday life!

This workshop is funded to engage those aged between 16-25, so please only reserve a spot if you are in this age range…

This online workshop gives you the means to do this by teaching you the basics of mushroom cultivation, all from your own home!

Prior to the event mushroom cultivation kits will be posted to you. All you need is brown cardboard waste and an old plastic container!

This event will provide you with valuable insights into sustainable practices and the role of fungi in a more eco-friendly future. The growth of an organism like fungi is a fun practice, a piece of holistic knowledge that can help reconnect a person with the planet

The activity is available online meaning you can take part from wherever you are.

You will need to get your hands on a 2 litre plastic bottle (or something similar, eg: plastic milk bottle), some plain brown cardboard (no printing or ink is preferred), AND / OR coffee waste in time for the workshop.

You will need to provide your address so we can post out mycelium growing packs for you, this will be an option on the Eventbrite page here
