Our Hackney Road shop will regrettably be closed for the foreseeable future due to the ongoing Covid-19 health crisis.

Fungi Fest 2019 | 6th October

We're excited about taking part at the inaugural festival: Fungi Fest, where we'll be having a mushroom-themed stall!

Fungi Fest is an all-day festival putting a spotlight on the wonderful world of fungiFungi are fundamental to life on earth. They inhabit the air, soil and water. They represent the cycle of life and death; through decomposing organic and synthetic matter such as dead roots and fruits, petroleum and metals - they spin our carbon cycle. Yet the work that fungi does is so often left in the dark, its alien-like forms and complex behaviours often misunderstood or under-represented. Fungi Fest is here to change that. 

Fungi Fest will have an array of activities for everyone to engage in. There will be talks from specialists in various fields including scientists, foragers, designers, activists, entrepreneurs, and artists. There will be workshops such as wild mushroom identification, grow your own mushroom, making medicinal mushroom broth and fermentation. Art installations will explore mushrooms and mycelial networks through sound, video and performance. Food vendors will serve mushroom dishes from a wide range of cultures. Market stalls will sell mushroom related products so you can continue your mycelial journey after the festival.

Join the fun on the 6th October 2019 at Hoxton Docks, London. Tickets available now!
