Mycology 101: How to Grow Your Own
Come out and join us on Sunday Oct. 28 at 7:00 for a demonstration and conversation on how to cultivate your own mushrooms. One of our members has been kind enough to agree to lead this evening's demonstration and will share his process for turning, as the late Terence McKenna used to say, "rye into mold, and mold into gold." Figuratively speaking, of course! While this technique can be implemented successfully with any number of mushroom species, this particular demo will involve the species "pleurotus ostereatus" (otherwise know as the oyster mushroom) as our presenter will lead us through the tricky yet ultimately incredibly satisfying steps of sterilization, innoculation, and cultivation, with hands on examples at each step. Have you grown before? Success or failure--bring your knowledge and questions to this get together and share what you know. See you there! "Growing the mushroom teaches you all kinds of traits you will need when you take it. Patience, diligence, cleanliness... a kind of discerning intelligence." --Terence McKenna

What we're about

The purpose of this group is to create a safe space to foster discussion and community between people interested in psychedelics and psychedelic research. The psychedelic experience can often leave one with more questions than answers, and this meetup will be an excellent forum to ask questions, share techniques and strategies for successful journeying, and empower the psychedelic narrative. Be warned: this group is not about hooking up or scoring, and no talk of this kind will be tolerated. These substances--while used by humankind since time immemorial--are, at the moment, schedule one illegal drugs and so while we can talk about them, we must respect the inherent risk of involving ourselves in criminal activity. To that end, this meetup will function as an empowering forum for those who believe that the current legal status of psychedelics is simply a historical anomaly that will, in time, be overturned.

To encourage a diverse range of voices at our events, PPS is committed to inclusivity; welcoming people of all ages, abilities, genders, races/ethnicities, socioeconomic classes, sexual orientations, and spiritual beliefs.
