Grow Wild are running Fungus Labs to introduce people to the wonders of the fungi kingdom.

It is estimated 90% of plants rely on fungi to live and that 93% of the world’s fungal species are yet to be discovered. Fungi have the potential to unlock sustainable sources of food and material, as well as other solutions to problems faced by humanity. And yet the number of mycologists (fungi experts) in the UK has declined by 20% and many mycologists are close to retirement.

Not enough people know about the importance of fungi which is why Grow Wild are inviting you to apply for a free fungus lab – a fun and engaging way for teams of five people to grow their own fungus and hopefully produce mushrooms in the process
