Hands-On Workshop at Our Mushroom Farm 13/4/24 10 am

Mushroom Cultivation Workshop North Perth

Event Date:


Start Time:

10:00 am


Mush Room

Join The FunGuy WA at our New Mushroom Farm in Morley – WA for a thrilling experience of growing gourmet mushrooms. Attendees will be welcomed in our brand new urban mushroom farm, for a glimpse on how a small commercial scale farm works. Enjoy a morning of exploring the world of mushrooms. With the mild and humid weather upon us, being ideal for mushroom growth, this is the perfect time to get started on your mushroom-growing journey.

The workshop will conclude with a gourmet mushroom tasting, allowing you to discover the unique flavours and textures of these increasingly popular delicacies. Mushrooms are a fantastic urban crop as they can be grown both indoors and outdoors and can be stacked on shelves to save space, making them ideal for both rural properties and tiny apartments. Some species can produce a harvest within just 3 to 4 weeks of preparation.

This is an IN-PERSON event, where the basics of gourmet mushroom cultivation will be discussed, followed by hands-on preparation of your very own mushroom block, allowing you to put your newfound knowledge to the test and embark on your own mushroom cultivation journey.

The workshop will cover tested and proven techniques, using readily available and affordable local materials. The objective is to provide a comprehensive, hands-on learning experience, eliminating the overwhelming amount of information available online and the trial and error often associated with novice mushroom growers.

With their fast growth rate, mushrooms make a perfect activity for kids and those seeking the freshest produce possible. You don’t need to invest in expensive lab equipment to grow gourmet mushrooms, and you will learn techniques using common household utensils that work. I have done the hard work of many trials and errors, using materials easily found in WA, to create a comprehensive and successful workshop for you. Get ready to hit the ground running and start growing your own fungi!

Each mushroom block retails from $30 to $40. By learning how to make them at a fraction of retail price, mushrooms can become an affordable gift or affordable and nutritious food addition to your diet.

  • Overview of Fungi world
