Oyster Mushroom Workshop

Mushrooms will save your life. Grow your own.

25 feb 2014

Fungi will play a key role in the future. We're hosting workshops to get to know this promising organic substance. In our inflatable cleanroom you'll muck around with mushroom spores, learn about mycelium (the roots of mushrooms) and infect your own grow bag. You'll be a fully certified mushroom farmer in just two hours. And harvest your own oyster mushrooms within a few weeks.


Oyster mushrooms peeping out of their bags with LED grow light. - In the Aquaponics hut we keet the temeperatures high by not ventilating too much in the cold season. But our plants need CO2. So we grow mushrooms in the same room. Mycelium produces CO2. So our plant feel good and we get to eat more mushrooms. Willem Velthoven

Mediamatic Bio Industry

This event is part of Mediamatic Bio Industry, a broad techno-cultural lab exploring the possibilities of fungal material and other bio-based materials for design, science and art. Scientist, artists, designers, architects, and the public, will together investigate how to make use of the promising characteristics of mycelium – the plastic of the 21st century.
