About your teacher:
A food activist & farmer, I have over 15 years of experience in growing food and developing food systems. My passion for growing food blossomed into a career when I started my own ecological & ethical business – Upcycled Mushrooms.
I now consult with farms to create sustainable growing solutions, using systems which limit the energy required for fungi cultivation whilst also recycling natural waste materials from the local area into food to feed fungi. Through Upcycled Mushrooms, I provide rare local-origin strains of fungi for other growers and a range of workshops & courses on how to grow edible mushrooms. I also developed the UK’s first ready to fruit “grow your own” Lion’s Mane mushroom kits.
