The Magic of Mushrooms

 

The Kingdom of Fungi is perhaps one of the most overlooked elements in our natural world considering the critical role they play in building and sustaining a healthy ecosystem. The first life forms to take hold on land, they have built and continue to maintain the soils from which all subsequent terrestrial life grows from and depends on.  Their significant medicinal and nutritional value is also greatly under appreciated by most.

In this workshop we will explore the fascinating kingdom of Fungi. We will begin with an introduction to Mycology; building a better understanding of these beings, their function in building and maintaining soils, basic cultivation techniques and their potential utility in Bioremediation efforts.  We will then highlight a number of species, and touch on some of the other fascinating and mysterious aspects of these beings. We will close our time with hands on demonstration of log cultivation and leave the result of our efforts as a gift to CoSM and it's residents.
