The program was enjoyable and enlightening. The themes included:

• The role of fungi in the ecosystem
• The life cycle of mushrooms
• The cultivation - strain selection/genetics, biological efficiency, and sustainability.

The workshop
The students were given a theoretical understanding of the world of fungi and were equipped with all they needed to know about cultivating mushrooms. The students also learnt how to create a sustainable & zero-waste ways to cultivate mushrooms at home, which enabled them to turn common household wastes, coffee grounds, mulch, leaf litter, and cardboard into healthy nutritious food.

The students interacted and shared knowledge with each other. The students, working in groups of 3, got to make their own mini mushroom farm which was later stored for observation.

The workshop concluded with students from various schools learning new concepts which set an idea of sustainability running in their minds and will lead to making plans to support the cause in the future society.
