Looking for a creative Father's Day gift that's both unique and good for the environment? Then join us for our first Building with Mycelium class! We'll create one of a kind succulent planters out of mycelium (the root-like parts of mushrooms) while learning a little about what makes fungi so cool.

This class will consist of three different sessions with the third session being optional (though you are strongly encouraged to attend). The dates for the sessions and what we will do at each are listed below:

- June 2: Build Day. We'll create the structures and package them for growing.
- June 9: You'll get your still living mycelium pot back to take home to bake.
- June 16: Planting Day. You'll bring your dry planter back to the space to show off and receive your succulent. This session is optional, but if you want to receive the succulent included in the class price you will need to attend.

We realize that three weekends in a row may be difficult for some, so if this is problem for you, please let us know so we can try to work something out.

This class is suitable for ages 12+.

The cost of this class is $20 which includes all the materials you will need to make your planter as well as a succulent plant.
