Yes, you’ve read that right – Sunday 9th October is UK Fungus Day!
To mark the day Feed Bristol is hosting a free, fun and educational event for all ages to find out more about the fascinating world of fungi.
There will be children’s activities, a fungi film space, a fungi foray to find mushrooms in the wild, mushroom cultivation workshops to help you to grow your own mushrooms at home, mushroom laboratory tours showing you Feed Bristol grow edible and medicinal fungi on site, a chance to try and buy unusual cultivated fungi and much more!
Feed Bristol is a community food-growing project run by Avon Wildlife Trust which enables people across Bristol to learn how to grow food using wildlife-friendly methods.
UK Fungus Day at Feed Bristol is just one of the free community events that the trust regularly offers throughout the year.
The event will be from 10am – 4pm and takes place at Feed Bristol on Frenchay Park Road, BS16 1EL.
All are welcome along to take part. Do bring sensible outdoor clothing – it’s likely to be a bit wet and muddy!
