1pm Saturday 8th JUNE
STATE HIGHWAY 23 (5km before Raglan )
Lennart (Lenny) grows organic fungi on an old citrus orchard east of Raglan. He mainly cultivates oyster mushrooms, selling them fresh, dried and marinated at the local farmer’s market and supplying nearby cafes and restaurants.
In his spare time though, Lenny coaxes more exotic fungal fare out of rotting wood and various bare patches in his back yard.
Lennart will show his what he is doing, how to grow mushrooms from spawn, and if weather permits take us for a walk in a local reserve to see what wild fruiting bodies are growing on live and dead trees.
