Welcome to the second chapter in our HOME GROWN programme. In this Chapter we take a look at growing Mushrooms at home. 

As part of the Bruntwood SciTech network, we’re inviting you and your family on a ‘Home Grown’ journey, to create your own sustainable urban farm and produce during thIs COVID-19 lockdown, that will not only feed you, but our community too. 

There has never been a better opportunity to help the planet, our minds, bodies and pockets.

How will this work?

Step 1 - This is what you need you to do now. 

Email events@mspl.co.uk to be added to the HOME GROWN Newsletter mailing list. As part of the programme you will get access to news, events and support to get the most out of your produce as well as a platform to share your experiances, issues and solutions. 

Step 2 - In this chapter we have teamed up with Jon from Ricardo, a keen mycologist. Jon will be releasing his how to video on 15th May on how to easily grow Oyster Mushrooms with a few easy steps. 

To help you get going we have a number of Oyster Mushroom starter kits we are delivering out to customers and thier familys in the Manchester area. To request your starter pack click here.

Each starter kit includes Oyster Mushroom Spawn and sawdust substrait. 

Step 3 - Post COVID-19 we intend to host a community Supper Club - for you, your friends and families. A showcase of what you have grown and to bring our community back together. We will work with you and local chefs to create a harvested menu for the event, whilst enjoying live music and performances. Sounds good huh?

If you are interested in being part of the GROW movement please email events@mspl.co.uk to log you or your family.
