Cortes Island Evening

Sorting TablePaul Stamets, in conjunction with the Hollyhock Lifelong Learning Centre, is offering a unique mushroom workshop located on beautiful Cortes Island in British Columbia, Canada October 18–22, 2017.

The focus of this workshop will be on collecting and identifying wild mushrooms found in the old growth forests of Cortes Island. Paul and his team will also demonstrate many of the cultivation techniques featured in his most recent book, Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World. The workshop is ideal for those that have a general interest in the field of mycology and are not yet interested in learning in-vitro sterile lab techniques.

Hollyhock has the perfect setting and facilities, which makes this workshop an exceptional experience. The gardens, old-growth forests and wonderful waters surrounding this remote retreat center will appeal to every type of outdoor enthusiast. We invite you to attend and enjoy this magical mushroom experience.
