Not enough people know about the importance of fungi...
...which is why, every autumn, we’re giving you the chance to grow your own fungus with a Grow Wild fungus lab – a box containing everything you need to grow a healthy crop of oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus ostreatus): at school, home, work, or anywhere else. And hopefully, you’ll end up with some delicious mushrooms to munch on! Check out out our oyster mushroom taco recipe for some meal inspiration.
First, you need to form a team with colleagues, group members or friends to share your growing experience. Then, you're ready to apply!
Make sure you read our terms and conditions before applying and use our handy resources to find out how to use your fungus lab.
Grow without a fungus lab
We only have a limited number of free fungus labs available, which is why not every application will be successful. But don't worry, you can join in with the growing experience by sourcing your own kit elsewhere, and simply following along on social media and via our regular growing guidance emails, since everyone who applies for a kit will receive our updates.
If you didn't get the chance to apply, you can still check out our resources and learn about why fungi matter on the website. Alternatively, if you would like to try growing mushrooms from kits or fungi, head over to our web page: How to grow your own fungi.
