Gardening With Mushrooms Workshop
May 5, 2018, 11:00am–1:00pm
21 acres, 13701 Northeast 171st Street
Join Permaculture Woodinville and Fungi Perfecti for a fun and informative workshop on growing mushrooms at home. You'll learn everything you need to know about growing the King Stropharia mushroom (Stropharia rugoso-annulata, also known as the Garden Giant™). It is a prolific producer of large, choice edible mushrooms. With the King Stropharia Mushroom Patch™ and a few household items you will create a beautiful experiential model that allows you to see how wood-decaying fungi interact with the soil. You will have a rare glimpse into the unseen underground world of fungi. You'll also learn how to transplant the mushroom mycelium into your garden so you can grow your own tasty mushrooms.
Attendees will need to bring an empty 2-liter bottle or similar container to the workshop. All other supplies will be provided.
Tickets are available here.

Into the MycoVerse
May 23rd, 7:00pm
401 Van Ness Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94102
Join Paul for an informative talk on mushrooms that aims to deepen your understanding and respect for the organisms that exist under every footstep.
His talk covers a range of mushroom species and new research showing how mushrooms can help the health of people and planet. Habitats have immune systems, just like people, and mushrooms are cellular bridges between the two. Our close evolutionary relationship to fungi can be the basis for novel pairings in the microbiome that lead to greater sustainability and immune enhancement.
Join Paul for this journey into the MycoVerse, deepening our understanding of our planet and ourselves along the way.
Tickets can be purchased here.
