Join Rhyze Mushrooms at their farm for a free workshop on the socio-political potential of ‘radical mycology’. Looking to fungi for both practical and theoretical inspiration, the workshop invites participants to collectively build resilience to socio-ecological crises, and nourish the roots tying us together.

The Forge is located on a development site in Fountainbridge, next to the canal. It can be accessed via pathways on Viewforth Rd (opposite the new School building), and Dundee St (opposite Papa John’s). Look out for the blue shipping containers and old pianos!



There is a compostable toilet onsite – but you need to use stairs to access it. The nearest accessible toilet is at the Edinburgh Printmakers – about 50 yards away or at the Fountainbridge.

The farm has a semi paved path from Gilmore Park, EH3 9FN. The ground around the farm is unpaved but navigable.
