This year marks the start of the Fungi forest project and I am very excited to share it with you
Over the last 22 years we have been holding mushroom tours a many different locations through out Victoria. As time has moved on many of our “Fungi Fields” have become increasingly unavailable due to so many reasons too urbanized, climate issues, over popular and simply not there.
So The Fungi Forest Project is a reforestation of 11 hectares with a range of micro environments to host as many different fungi as possible so we can continue conducting the tours each year.
This is a long term project with some of the trees that will be planted today wont reach their maturity for 60 years at least.

Down in the valley will be our little 27acre Forest
Simply put we will be foresting an area approximately of 27 acres over the next 25 years to to create a series of micro environments that will become home to many animals, plants, trees and of course fungi.
In years to come we hope this will become our home for our tours and a permanent venue for environmental education.
