Learn to grow mushrooms at home! – Workshop and book talk

Saturday, March 7, 10 am-4pm

Welcome to a full-day workshop where you will learn how to grow your own mushrooms at home. Adam Adobati, landscape scientist, biologist and one of Naturskyddsföreningen (the Nature Conservation Association) Daga-Gnesta’s mushroom enthusiasts will tell and show how you can easily grow oyster mushrooms and hedgehog mushrooms using coffee grounds, fodder and stumps.

During lunch we offer soup made of Matsutake mushroom. Axel Andersson, author and critic, gives a summary of the book Mushroom at the End of the World by Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing, and leads a conversation with those who have read the book. The book is based on the matsutake mushroom (in Swedish goliatmusseron) and asks the question of what can live in landscapes damaged by human progress. The book can be ordered for example at Adlibris and Bokus.

The course and the conversation are free of charge and are a collaboration between the Nature Conservation Association Daga-Gnesta and Art Lab Gnesta.
