Mickey Pascoe

Mickey will be presenting the course on the day. He's got an honours degree in Marine Biology and a Masters in Natural Resource Management so nature is his "thing".

Mickey is hands-on in all aspects of mushroom growing, from culture work in the lab to building a steriliser, he's got a head full of scientific and practical knowledge to put you on the path to success.

There is rarely a mushroom-related question he can't answer.

Amy Pascoe

Amy has spent more time with mushrooms than other humans in the past few years. She manages the wholesale side of Little Acre, hand picking, packing and delivering the mushrooms direct to chefs.

She will be on-hand during practical parts to guide you through and answer questions.

Amy can tell you down to the hour of when a mushroom will be perfect to pick and has extensive experience in how climatic conditions can effect your crop.

Good value

"The ecology and biology was a great place to start and the practical workshop was a perfect (near) ending too. The two presenters were knowledgeable and encouraged questions. The range of resources (books and fungi) to look at and provoke discussion were great too. The course was good value and the mushroom kits to take home were generous."

Damian - June 2021

Very informative

"The class was very informative - I learnt lots of things about mushrooms/fungi that I didn't know, including uses as building materials and medicine. It was interesting to listen to and take part in. The practical side of things was easy. We took home kits we'd made and other goodies. The location was great, central and easy to find."
