Fungi for the People

Free Event!

Fungi for the People: Learning from Fungi to adapt in an Ever-changing World. We can develop strategies for working with mushrooms to solve problems in Food and Environmental Justice, putting power back into the hands of the people. By converting waste-streams into community centered projects where nutrient dense food and economic sovereignty can be reached via mushroom cultivation, with by-products of healthier soils and healthier people. We will explore such projects that have ignited positive change in areas of Asia and Africa, and draw a roadmap of action appropriate for our own communities, with a focus on the effects of fungi and radiation in the human body.

Ja Schindler is the founder and director of Fungi For The People9 http://fungiforthepeople.org/), an organization dedicated to social and environmental justice through conducting research and offering education in mushroom production and mycoremediation.

Originally from Detroit, Michigan, his interests in post-industrial urban renewal, food security, and environmental awareness have driven him to forge new approaches in converting organic waste streams into nutrient dense foods via community-scale mushroom cultivation, all while enhancing biodiversity in urban rebound ecosystems. Ja now resides in Eugene, Oregon where he is developing a Mushroom Cultivation Design Center, and frequently facilitates courses and delivers lectures on mycology around the country.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
