Our planet has 3 kingdoms. Animals, plants… and fungus.

It was fungus that first unlocked our nutrients from the rocky ground. Without it we would have no life on land. Fungus gave us antibiotics, it makes our bread rise, and it helps trees speak to each other (yes, in real life!)

Join us for a session of craft and stories, exploring how we are all connected in nature. Grow your own sculpture using ‘mushroom polystyrene’ eco material and listen to a beautiful story about what we can learn from fungus. Ideal for children ages 4-11.

This session is run by Threads in the Ground – the new climate hope organisation based in the North East.
