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 + 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.
