Mushrooms Wild & Mysterious – Workshop with Paul Stamets

October 22, 2014 - October 26, 2014

Save the world, one mushroom at a time. Fungi, particularly mushrooms, offer powerful, practical solutions to enhance both human and ecosystem health. Learn easy-to-grow cultivation methods using a hands-on approach. Gain the skills to identify at least twenty-five species of mushroom, both wild and cultivated. Delve into fungi’s historic and contemporary uses as food and medicine. Learn the secrets of cooking and preserving these delectable treats as well as how to process them into fibre. Discuss the evolution of mushrooms in ecosystems and the crucial roles fungi plays in destroying pollutants and up-channelling nutrients for the benefit of other organisms in the biosphere.

Paul Stamets is founder of Fungi Perfecti, and was named by Utne Reader magazine as one of the Top Fifty visionaries in 2008. He has pioneered many innovations in the cultivation and use of edible and medicinal mushrooms. He is the author of The Mushroom Cultivator, Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms, and Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World. www.fungi.com
