Chiswick Flower Market anniversary: Caley Brothers mushroom growing workshop

Take part in Chiswick Flower Market’s first anniversary weekend by learning how to grow your own mushrooms with Caley Brothers.

Love mushrooms? Like to grow some yourselves? Come and take part in this fun workshop with kids as a whole family experience at the Chiswick Flower Market. Make up your own mushroom box and take it away with you. Within three weeks you will be harvesting your own mushrooms at home.

Everything required for the workshop will be provided.

In the workshop, which last one hour, we will be exploring the amazing world of edible mushrooms; show you how you can grow your own mushrooms at home; chat about the varieties of edible mushrooms you can get locally, play some mushroomy games and answer any questions you may have about cooking with mushrooms.

The £35 cost covers the cost of one box and includes a £5 voucher to spend at our stall. The price is per box rather than per person or group, so a family of four might pay for one box to make together for £35, or you could choose to make two boxes to take home for £70.
