Hands on workshop on making an experimental 'fun-guy(fungi)-kit

Together with Natalia Borissova there will be the chance to get your own non-green-garden done within an afternoon.

Intrigued by the prospect of pro-creating your very own mushrooms, but daunted by all the talk about contamination and sterile procedures, or bored with the standard 'Mushroom Growing Kits' offered on the market? Same here! There for/there are: some non-sterile methods and simple procedures, fast-to-grow varieties, experimental substrates and mediums will be handed-on at the
session, that you can take home a bunch of 'objects' and 'subjects' for your potential non-green-garden at home, yard and any other in/outdoor habitat.
