The word guru, as a noun, means "teacher" or "imparter of knowledge" in Sanskrit.
As an adjective, guru means "heavy with knowledge".
Welcome to Mushroom Guru. This website is designed to give you accurate information about mushrooms that you can eat and mushrooms that you should avoid. Whether you would like to have a wild mushroom identified, before you feed it to your family, or learn how to grow these mystifying specimens yourself...we may have a solution for you.
Mushroom Guru delivers mushroom education via informal workshops, and Social media platforms. Mushroom Guru also produces spawn and mushroom cultures for a mushroom cultivating community called: "fungkifriends" which is currently in development.
This website is constantly being upgraded, so be sure to return from time to time to enjoy the improvements.
With the launch of this website in May 2013 Mushroom Guru has given rise to many new beginnings for inspired mushroom cultivators. From mushroom identifications via email to workshops hosted at the factory in Somerset West, Mushroom Guru (Pty)Ltd. is fast becoming the "Go-to" website for mushroom information in South Africa. This website is constantly growing due to the collective passion we all share.
"There are old mushroom hunters and there are bold mushroom hunters, never both."

If you would like to book your seat for our next workshop or just view what we have to offer, please visit our Mushroom Workshops page.
We offer three mushroom workshops and an Advanced Course.
In any of our workshops, you will learn the different types of Oyster mushrooms, how to grow them at home and how to prepare them. You will be guided through the process of making up substrates and loading grow-bags. How to handle your mushroom spawn is also an important part of this workshop.
In the Advanced Fungi Culturing Course you learn everything from making your own mushroom cultures to grow bags. Not for the 'faint hearted'.
Once you have done a workshop or course and you are considering growing your own mushrooms, consider becoming a fungkifriend! We will use this website to help you setup your business and begin attracting customers for you!
