Anyone can gift growing mushrooms to a school. Teachers, students, parents, and anonymous people can gift to their school or the school of your choice.
The school will get a grow bag sent to the school address with full instructions.
Give the gift that keeps on giving, help me inspire a new world of mushroom growers that love New Zealand.
You must get it sent to a school address.
A teacher sent this in after we sent them a free bag:
This morning there were kids with open mouthed astonishment. Oh wow! I have never had so many children dragging their parents by their hand into their classroom to show them something interesting. The information they are giving their parents is gold. One of my students is not very articulate (due to autism) but he is fascinated by what he refers to as our fungi forest. Thank you for inspiring my students.
A large grow bag worth $47 will be sent.
This two-step mushroom growing kit is the next step after you fruited a ready-made grow bag.
These kits make much larger bags than our largest Ready to fruit grow bag
Just add boiling water, cool, and then add the seeds (rye berries inoculated with oyster mushroom mycelium).
These are also great for education in schools or for your children to show them how the mushroom growing process works. The photos below are from a school teacher who fruited the bag in her classroom. Rare Native Pleurotus pulmonarius is the spawn.
There are Two options for this two-step mushroom growing kit.
You can buy extra substrate bags, up to 10 can be inoculated from the bag of spawn included.
