Mushroom Cultivation Workshop in Tacoma's Food Forest

A study of fungal social interplay, uncovering layers of spaces to encourage healthy mushroom societies in soils and trees. A wide range of edible mushrooms, mycorrhizal applications, and mushroom habitat zones will be covered.

This will be the beginning of our outdoor mushroom cultivation in Tacoma's Food forest at Swan Creek Park on Tacoma's East side. Though this applies to myroforestry, cultivation concepts can be used in other contexts, as well. Learning how to cultivate mushrooms for food, medicine and mycroremediation gives a rounded view on how to manage and benefit from the direct environments at hand.

Workshop will be lead by Fungi for the People founder Ja Schindler, and though part will take place in the food forest itself, the class portion will be indoors at the Portland Ave. Community Center.

$10-$40 sliding scale.

    Hey everyone! Due to being snowed in, mycologist Ja Schindler is having trouble getting here for tonight's talk at King's Books; therefore, the other meetup on this theme has been cancelled. THIS workshop, however, is still on! Don't let the price deter you; no one will be turned away due to lack of funds! In short, we hope to see you there!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
