Growing Gourmet Mushrooms course

This course was postponed earlier in the year so we are delighted that we have the opportunity to offer this again!

A one-day introduction to growing gourmet mushrooms, with Adrian Ogden of Gourmet Woodland Mushrooms

Sunday 13 October 2019, 10.00am – 4.00pm

The aim of this course is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to grow their own gourmet mushrooms outdoors.  An indoor session will cover the biology and ecology of mushrooms and fungi and the important role that mushroom mycelium play in the cultivation process, including a look at different types of mushroom spawn. A practical outdoor session will demonstrate making up a Shiitake log and a Nameko woodchip mushroom bed.  Each participant will make their own log and take it home with them.  Gourmet Woodland Mushrooms has been producing mushroom spawn since 2004, so this course will provide a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw upon.  Includes refreshments and a light lunch.

£50 per person
