Saturday, September 17, 2022 – Wild Mushroom Identification Workshop
Saturday September 17th at 10 am for a morning in the woods to meet the fungi. Learn a basic framework to identify them and then practice your skills. We’ll talk about edible, medicinal and species for new materials. After lunch we’ll spend the afternoon sorting and keying specimens we’ve gathered or that you bring with you from home.

Saturday evening, September 17, 2022 – Mushrooms Whispering
We’ll gather around a campfire to go on several shamanic journeys with the drum to meet the fungi below ground and hear what they have to say about repairing, remediating and revitalizing our landscapes/seascapes. Sharing these experiences with one another ushers in new ways of knowing within the collective.

Sunday, September 18th, 2022 – Backyard Mushroom Cultivation
The next day, Sunday September 18th we’ll spend the day inoculating various substrates with Shiitake, Oyster, Maitake and Wine Cap species to start cultivating fungi in your backyard.
