Mushrooms are a Hit at the Good Friday Appeal

On Friday 25th March at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre, the Costa Mushroom team supported the Good Friday Appeal – KIDS DAY OUT (within the Woolworths pavilion).

 The event is held annually to raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital, which this year raised $17.4M.

Costa Mushrooms donated 5 mushroom beds and 6 volunteer staff, offering children an opportunity to learn how to harvest their own mushrooms in return for a gold coin donation.  Our beds were fenced off this year which allowed the team to engage with Children in an orderly manner, and the time to talk about mushrooms and teaching our harvesting technique.

 The day was a huge success with all 5 beds completed stripped by 3pm.
