Past fund raising efforts

Kapenta range 2011

Back in 2011, Kapenta produced some batik clothing with mushroom designs for Fungimap 6 Conference in Denmark 2011. We have found these clothes to be long lasting and comfortable and many people have since asked if they could have more.Then in 2014 Roz and I did some T-shirts as a fund raiser for the Interactional Society for Fungal Conservation and local fungal groups.

So now Roz Hart, some post host volunteers and I want to do it again but with the Batik clothing.

If this years colours and styles go well we will do more next year. If you are interested in being involved as a post host or have a project you would like supported in the future please contact ffunecol@gmail.com.
