Nick Ritar will show you some low-tech mushroom cultivation methods from he and Kirsten Bradley’s soon to be released book Milkwood – Real skills for down-to-earth living. You’ll learn to use recycled containers to grow delicious white, pink, blue, golden, pearl or king oyster mushrooms in your home or garden.

Kirsten Bradley and Nick Ritar of Milkwood Permaculture


Kirsten Bradley + Nick Ritar left the city to start a small permaculture farm called Milkwood ten years ago, with a dream of living simply and within their means. Since then, they’ve been growing food and sharing skills wherever they’ve lived or travelled — from building biochar stoves to creating rooftop community gardens to teaching permaculture design. They currently live, grow, forage and keep bees at Melliodora permaculture near Daylesford.
