Workshops and lectures

Our team and trusted partner network have a wide knowledge range of working with fungi and we would like to share this knowledge with you. If you are interested in hosting a workshop or lecture, we will gladly create an individual, relevant program according to your wishes.

Possible topics are for example the cultivation of mushrooms in your own garden or the implementation of fungi in the farming or forestry industry.

Our educational programs can be designed for every age or interest group and are currently mostly presented in English. On demand, we can also offer some workshops or lectures in Finnish.

Our experienced team has given workshops for schools, nonprofit organizations, universities as well as companies and associations. We can offer you the best solution and if our Mushroom Agents are not available, we will forward your request to our partners.

If you are interested in joining an existing workshop, be sure to check out our Facebook page for updates on news and events or you can check our upcoming events below. On Instagram we share some mycological moments and more with you.

We would be happy to welcome you to one of our events and introduce you to the fascinating world of the fungi!

Growing mushrooms on toilet paper

This workshop is especially designed for people who have no or little experience with growing mushrooms: This easy method is the perfect way to get to know this fascinating world. 
At the end of the workshop, participants will take their inoculated toilet paper roll home where they will grow. After the mushrooms have been harvested the toilet paper can be used as a starter for other projects such as growing mushrooms on coffee grounds.

In 1,5 hours, our mushroom Agents will give you an introduction to the world of mushrooms and also inoculate (i.e plant the mushroom into) the toilet paper roll and give you instructions how to handle it at home.

Join us in experiencing the fun of growing mushrooms!

Perfect also for kids!
