Mushroom Propagation at Home

This class will introduce the mushroom lifecycle, promote understanding and appreciation for the fungal role as decomposers, plant symbiotic partners, environmental mediators, food and medicine for their eco partners, and healers for ecological restoration. We will also discuss identification, collecting protocol as well as cultivation techniques with an emphasis on outdoor cultivation. Participants will understand the basics of using low tech methods to promote and support the growth of mycelium and mushrooms in their gardens and built landscape using the model of natural systems for a guide.

The class includes handouts as well as a mushroom sample kit to take home.
