About the Workshop
This event takes place on unceded and occupied Coast Salish territory.
Interested in growing your own mushrooms? In this workshop we will dive in the wonderful world of mushroom cultivation using simple DIY methods that you can do at home. This workshop is suitable for beginners, but all levels will learn something new. We will cover tissue cloning, liquid culture, bulking up your spawn and log inoculation. Along with mushroom cultivation techniques, we will also discuss the lifecycle of the mushroom, a growers timeline, uses for mushrooms (including bioremediation), and how to incorporate them into your gardens.
Participants will be able to take home their own inoculated log. Liquid culture and spawn are also available for purchase.
** This course is free for all Indigenous people. I am strongly committed to keeping the work accessible to people of diverse backgrounds and variable means while also supporting this organization. If you need financial assistance to be able to join, please reach out to email@example.com **

Bo is a neurodivergent, queer, gender non-conforming, white settler, with a chronic illness. After seeking more formal education and finishing a Bsc in environmental sciences they dove deeper into all that the natural world had to teach them. They now focus on creating spaces where others can also connect to the natural world and learn a bunch of skills while doing so. They take enormous pleasure in weaving together a dynamic curriculum that includes science, spirituality, and politics while creating an inclusive and heart centered space.
