About this event

Come spend a day in our stunning woodland. Learn how to grow medicinal and edible mushrooms on logs and help us on our mushroom farm at the same time!

This ancient technique of mushroom growing began 2,000 years ago in China. It’s the most nutrient dense, sustainable method there is for mushroom production and the most enjoyable skill to learn.

A working exchange retreat which is an opportunity for meditation and sharing, nature connection, learning and applying the skills you have learnt. A great skill to have for any fungi lover!

Important Info

  • Wellies or closed toe boots are necessary
  • Please bring a packed lunch as log inoculation is hungry work!
  • Foraged teas and fire-side snacks will be provided.
  • If you're not able-bodied or have issues with mobility please let us know before signing up, we will do our best to accommodate you if we can.

These are working retreats so please be prepared for this and arrive appropriately. We kindly invite you to come for the whole day to get the most out of the experience and cultivate good connections within the group.

No previous experience needed, just a can-do attitude!

A note on our free experiences:We ask that you only book if you’re able to come, if you’re not able to make it please let us know as far in advance as you can as spaces are limited. In the spirit of the exchange economy, we want to keep these events free and not charge a booking or place fee. Please be mindful that when you book and do not come both 42 Acres and others lose out.
