Training course


Fascinated by fungi? Or ever marvelled at the mysteries of mushrooms? Then this course is for you!

Starting out with an introduction to fungal biology, diversity and ecology, exploring how incredible and important these organisms are, the course will then explore several outdoor and indoor growing techniques, for a range of delicious edible fungi.
We will cover everything you need to know to get growing your own fungi. From obtaining and storing fungi strains, right the way through to the development of grain spawn and production blocks. We will show you how to use the spawn you have made to create outdoor fungi beds and fungi log cultures, which can be integrated into your garden or allotment.
Following on from the understanding gained in the first two days, the third day will focus on field identification skills. Introducing the main groups of fungi, how to tell them apart, where to find them, and most importantly how to do it safely!
Taught by two experienced and passionate tutors, Rich Wright and Patrick Mallery, this three-day course is the ideal introduction to this hidden kingdom.
