Why grow mushrooms..

  • Mushrooms are tasty and nutritious but expensive to buy; however, they can be easily grown on waste products, recycling the waste and turning it into usable compost.
  • Waste, food miles, and low-carbon food production are becoming increasingly important; mushroom-growing can be a key part of the solution to these problems, a solution which most of us can easily take up.
  • Nutritionally, mushrooms are high in protein, calcium and fibre, are rich in antioxidants and many important minerals and vitamin D. They are also low in fat.
  • Mushrooms can be cooked in many different ways and can add tremendous flavours to many recipes.
  • Mushrooms are known as ‘nature’s recyclers’ and are essential to our woodlands and pastures.
  • Research is also ongoing into the medicinal properties of mushrooms, and their potential uses in habitat restoration.

Workshops can be run at a variety of locations, including schools, festivals, fairs and other events, or at your home, or at our own base in the Shropshire hills.
