The Mushroom Bureau – the generic body to promote all mushrooms sold in Britain – has re-vamped its website. The new secton on the site is Education.
The whole farming cycle from composting to harvesting mushrooms is explained pictorially with easy-to-study captions. A Primary school project sheet for KS2 pupils can be downloaded for classroom work. A GCSE Study Card can also be downloaded for KS4, Food Technology students. The Study Card is cross-referenced to a Nutrition & Health section on the site. Mushroom growers and teachers have written the copy and the photographs were taken on a mushroom farm in East Anglia.

The Mushroom Bureau is funded by growers and allied trades in the UK, Republic of Ireland, Holland and Poland. The budget covers public relations and publicity – working with television, radio, newspapers and magazines in Britain.
