About the event

Ever  conscious of the unfolding ecological collapse that confronts us,  Bristol Fungarium's founder, Tom, chose to find meaning through working  the land in 2008 as an organic veg farmer. 10 years later, Bristol  Fungarium was born with the mission is to cultiva, process and provide  the best medicinal mushroom products available here in the UK - with the  least negative impact on our local environment, while inspiring and  educating people about the history, science and healing opportunities of  the mushrooms they grow and love.

Bristol  Fungarium strive to do things differently by offering native strains,  organically grown, processed, and packed under a single roof. We want to  be the first to not only make the whole supply chain short and  transparent - but potentially the only company who knows exactly where  our mushroom species originated. We do this by carefully foraging for  interesting species, bringing them back to our lab at the farm, and  cloning them on plates of agar before fruiting them on myceliated blocks  we create with sustainably sourced sawdust and organic wheat bran.

By  prioritising strains that are native to the land we live on, we are  avoiding the spread of billions of spores from commercial mushroom  strains that have been selected specifically for their ability to grow  fast and fruit heavily, and will therefore easily outcompete a lot of  the mushroom strains we are so lucky to have around the farm.

Our  ultimate goal is to utilise the “spent” (leftover) substrate from our  mushroom blocks to spearhead mycoremediation projects in our local  community, as well as "re-mushrooming" woodlands across the South West  with native strains - which has already begun. Bristol Fungarium is a  developing story, and this is only the beginning...
