About Us

Myco (mushrooms) + Ambrosia (food of the Greek gods) = Mycosia!

Welcome to Mycosia where we are all about connecting you with the wonderful world of fungi!

MycosiaUK CIC is a fungi-focused small company that started up in the Spring of 2024. We started growing fresh mushrooms, branched into selling grow kits and powders, and now deliver nature-based educational workshops for the community too! Read on to learn about our team and our company's ethos...

Meet the Team!

Brendan is the myco-mad mastermind behind Mycosia. His love for mushrooms and the outdoors spread from being a hobby to becoming a way of life. His fascination with growing fungi brings you all the delicious mushrooms and powders on sale, as well as the knowledge behind our cultivation and foraging workshops. Forest School certified, you may find him delivering outdoor skills learning sessions to local primary schools.

Amelia thinks mushrooms are magical and adorable. She brings you the photos from behind the scenes, and assists with sales, event planning, tech, and workshops. She has a background in child education and creates the resources to accompany our outdoor childrens' sessions.

Brad thinks mushrooms are "cool as f**k" magical little beings that can do things nothing else can in completely unique ways. He works in the mushroom lab and brings you some of our fresh mushrooms, powders, and grow kits. He is currently studying a Biology degree and focusing on the lesser-researched fungi family.

It's not just the adults of Mycosia that are involved! Brendan and Amelia's daughter frequently helped out at the mushroom lab and especially enjoyed the more technical syringe work. Their son loves foraging walks and has a great eye for the tiny mushrooms hiding on the ground. You'll sometimes spot one or both of the mushlings at our workshops and kids sessions.

Our Ethos

  • Our aim at Mycosia is to help people engage with the nature that is all around them in a way that works for each person: We grow fresh mushrooms, grow kits, and make powders for the mushroom fans. We offer educational talks and workshops for schools, community groups, and budding mycologists. And we run foraging walks to help people bring nature's bounty into their every day life.

  • We enjoy working with children to help them engage with, and learn about, fungi and their relationship to both nature and to ourselves. Having backgrounds in forest schools and child education, we work with schools and home education groups to spread the love of mushrooms and plants to the next generation.

  • Here at Mycosia we are part of the neurodivergent and LGBTQ+ families. We are always mindful of inclusivity and look for ways to adapt our services to make them more accessible wherever possible. We believe that nature and knowledge are a right not a privilege. So we welcome suggestions and will happily work with you and your organisation to try to build a workshop, walk, or talk that is suitable for your needs.

We look forward to working with you and spreading the love for these magical, marvellous mushrooms!
