About this Event

Join mycologist Christopher Smith for a fascinating foray into the wonders of mycology!
Mycology translates as the ‘ study of fungi’, a group that covers mushrooms, yeasts, and more.

In this session:

  • Learn all about the process of mushroom growing on logs using inoculated dowels.
  • We’ll be learning about Phoenix Oyster or Pekepekekiore edible fungi.
  • Then get together and take turns drilling and making inoculated dowel logs (or watch and learn). 
  • Christopher will then discuss how to get your grow kit growing for the best possible growing and harvest!

Ticket Options:
1. Workshop only $20
2. Workshop + Phoenix Oyster or Pekepekekiore Mushroom Log $45* ($5 off both workshop and kit price)

*Please Note: Christopher requires a minimum of two weeks to prepare the dowels if you’d like to make a mushroom log in the workshop. Please book by Friday, March 22 if you’d like to take home an inoculated log.

If you have access to a cordless drill, please bring it with you on the day. Bit size, tbc.

If you have any questions, please email [email protected].

Cost: $20 – $45
