Mushrooms are a valuable food-source with an important role to play in our lives: nutritionally, medicinally and environmentally. This course will be run in collaboration with Mushrooms for the Masses, who aim to encourage interest in the home production of mushrooms and also give an insight into the bigger picture of the world of mushrooms and the positive impact they can have within ecology.

You will create your own Oyster mushroom starter kit as well as a log inoculated with Shitake mushrooms  to take away with you at the end of the course.

This course will be taught by Nicki from Mushrooms for the Masses.

Covid-19 and Courses


The Green Wood Centre has worked tirelessly to ensure that staff & visitors are entering a COVID safe environment. SWA have a duty of care to participants, staff, trainees, volunteers, etc. We ask that all tutors and participants respect the measures stated regardless of their personal views, there will be an induction by your course tutor on arrival.

In the event that a course has to be cancelled due to Covid-19, a full refund will be provided and we will suggest keeping an eye on the website and re-booking once the course has become available again.

Our experience:


Small Woods use only experienced professionals and woodland practitioners as tutors. We have more than 20 years’ experience of delivering courses and training and a reputation for high quality teaching and professionalism.

Small Woods courses are suitable for all levels of experience and ability and we keep course numbers low. The physical nature and/or woodland location of some courses may make them difficult for people with mobility problems. We do, however, have many years’ experience in enabling all groups to attend courses and will make every effort to ensure a satisfying experience for all.
