About the event


As a follow-up on his talk about mycology, history and usage on August 23rd, Darren Le Baron will be back at the Shack on Tuesday 6th September for more mushroom fun! Come and learn  how to grow them yourself!

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.

This will be a hands on experience covering everything you need to know to get you started. What will we cover? * What are Mushrooms? * How do Mushrooms grow? * How do you grow Mushrooms at home? * Mushroom Aftercare * Where to get everything?

Each participant will leave with a mushroom grow kit and access to online materials.

The Shack has a fantastic and extensive range of food, drinks (hot & cold), cocktails, smoothies  and many mushroom based dishes and beverages.  In addition to our normal menu, you have a chance to order either a 2 or 3 course mushroom based dinning experience  as well.

We’d love to see you there! Peace, Love and Shrooms
