About the event

Get ready! Urban Kulture is back on the East Coast for the 2024 EAST COAST WORKSHOP TOUR to deliver their 2 x beginner hands on mushroom cultivation workshops in person. 

Join Urban Kulture for either the '5 Minute Mushroom Kit' (Level 1) or the '5 Minute Grain Spawn' (Level 2) or make the most of the value deal and attend both!


5 Minute Mushroom Kit: 

A short course on making mushroom grow kits from grain spawn (Level 1)

This is our introductory gourmet and medicinal mushroom cultivation course.

It's 'all you need to know, to get you growing as fast as possible.'

Here's what you need to know:

  • The lingo – the 5 words you need to know to start speaking mushroom cultivation
  • The technique – Learn to create your very own mushroom growing kits in only 5 minutes
  • The aftercare – How to successfully ignore your kits as they do their thing
  • The fruiting – The part where you grow the mushrooms!
  • The multiple harvests – how to get as many mushrooms out of your kits as possible
  • The supplies – what to get and where to get it from

After the presentation, you will make 2 x mushroom grow kits to take home with you! (Value $35)

You will also receive access to the ‘5-minute mushroom kit’ community group on our website for continued learning and access to a recording of the presentation.

There is no specialised or expensive equipment needed for this technique. 

Not only will you have all the mushrooms you can eat, you will never need to buy another birthday or Christmas gift again. Mushroom kits for everyone!

Workshop Duration:  1 hour and 30 minutes                 

Workshop Cost:  $90 (includes 2 x take home mushroom kits - Value $35)


5 Minute Grain Spawn: 

A short course in making your own grain spawn from liquid culture (Level 2)

The follow on from ‘The 5-Minute Mushroom Kit’ this workshop will expand your mushroom cultivation skillset by dipping your toes into sterile techniques and learning how to make our own grain spawn (in only 5 minutes!).

This course is still very much suited for the beginner and will not require any expensive equipment purchases. You already know how to make fruiting kits from spawn (inoculant) so now it’s time to reduce your per kit cost and dive a little deeper into cultivation by learning how to make your own grain spawn.

Much like the 5-minute kit, 5-minute grain spawn is designed for minimal time inputs, no special equipment and super easy to follow techniques.

Here is a quick rundown of what you will learn:

  • Some new lingo, another 5 words you need to know!
  • How to make a still air box for doing sterile work
  • How to take a spore print and make a multi spore syringe
  • Grain spawn inoculation using liquid culture or multi spore solution
  • Grain to grain transfers for second generation spawn
  • How to look after and store your spawn

After the presentation, you will inoculate and take home 5 x 125g bags of grain spawn which can then be turned into as many as 15 x mushroom fruiting kits! 

Of course, this is not just the live event, you will also have unlimited access to a recording of the course, as well as access to the ‘5-Minute Grain Spawn’ group which can be accessed via our website... to ask any questions as they arise, show off your grain spawn grows and be part of a wonderful growing community!

Workshop Duration:  2 hours       

Workshop Cost:  $130 (includes 1 x take home liquid culture syringe - Value $20 and 5 x 125g bags of grain spawn - Value $30)
