Grow fungus with us!

Does your team have the skills to create the right conditions to grow fungi and produce mushrooms? Do you want to learn about the fascinating kingdom of fungi? Then you're in the right place! 

Fill in the form below to apply for a fungus lab for a team of five people. You could even choose to battle it out with other teams to be crowned the best fungus growers in the land!

We can't guarantee that your team will be successful, so make a great case for why you should get the chance to grow your own fungus. We'll be in touch in April to let you know if your application is successful. Find out more.

This needs to be an address where you can receive a package in April 2019. Please be aware that it does not fit through a letter box!

Nearly there! Just a few formalities to go...

All team leaders entered on this form must be over 16. Tick here to confirm:
