Today, UrbanFarmers have a stall at the 'Next Generation' education day in Chalkwall Park, part of village green. Together with many other stall holders we hope to help impart knowledge and educate the next generation of society in good and healthy living. The weather couldn't be better...for humans, although it may be a little on the warm side for our lovely oyster mushrooms, which we are demonstrating through 3 stages of our production process....although to be honest, the final fruiting stage demo bag hasn't faired so well in transit and I am currently just awaiting a replacement.
We are hoping that the children find our idea of permaculture interesting and will be offering the opportunity to purchase our amazing 'Grow your own Oyster Mushroom kits' so that they can experiment with growing their own oyster mushrooms at home using their (parents) used coffee grinds. These 'Grow your own Oyster Mushroom kits" are proving so popular, not only with children, who find the whole process fascinating, but also with adults, who equally so are intrigued with the process. This is a great gift for children and 'foodies' alike.
