    Mushrooms have been growing wild since prehistoric times. Their therapeutic value has been prized in indigenous cultures, for thousands of years. They play a critical role in medicinal practice and were noted in some of the first books on herbal medicine written thousands of years ago

    In the past few decades, mushrooms have become more popular for their therapeutic qualities in the west as a result of an expanding body of scientific research supporting their numerous health benefits.

    Come and learn the basics of mushroom cultivation, explore various techniques for growing gourmet and medicinal mushrooms such as Oyster, Reishi, Shiitake and many other strains of mushrooms. In this workshop Darren shares his practical tips and experience to help you successfully grow mushrooms at home. This will be a hands on experience we will cover everything you need to know to get you started.

    Darren Springer will lead the workshop. He is Horticulture and Food Enterprise tutor at Organiclea in London. He’s a keen mushroom grower and teacher, for the last seven years he has been growing edible mushrooms and has translated his home growing experience into a commercial project.
