Fill Your Own Growkit Workshop

Helsieni offers mushroom cultivation workshops. The best way to learn is to do it! In these workshops you get hands on experience and practical tips on how to grow mushrooms at home.

In the Fill Your Own Growkit Workshop we will teach you about cultivating oyster mushrooms on coffee grounds. We will make the Helsieni substrate mix that we also use in our farm of coffee, oat husks and oyster mushroom spawn.  Each participant can take home the Growkit which they have filled themselves. All you have to do is wait until mushrooms come out!


  • Reception & Introduction
  • A brief review of mushroom cultivation theory
  • Preparing the substrate mix
  • Inoculation of the substrate & preparing of Growkits
