(inter)national Radical Mycology Convergence

The Olympia Mycelial Network is happy to announce plans for the first (inter)national Radical Mycology Convergence.

We hope to create space for inspiring discussions on the future of radical mycological efforts and their implications. Proposed workshops include Do-It-Yourself mushroom cultivation, mushroom identification, and mycopermaculture.…See More

2 Chicken of the Woods in 3 days!

While I was away from the cemetery hunt, I went on my own mushroom hunt with Colin.... on foot and while biking.

Cultivating Oyster Mushrooms from Grain Spawn

Rafter Sass showed us how easy it is to cultivate your own mushrooms! Take Wood Chips/Straw/Natural Substrate (1 bale straw) soaked in water overnight (or mason's lime) and let it drain until it's spongey wet like good compost, thenmix the substrate with grain spawn (1lb) and pack it into cardboard boxes that aretaped shut and kept in a space 65-75 degrees. In 2 weeks, punch holes.In 2 more weeks (or less?) you'll get mushrooms! Mist it after it fruits, and you should get 2-3 more flushes of…See More

Lightning really does make mushrooms multiply

Japanese farming folklore has it that lightning makes mushrooms multiply, and new research supports the idea. Mushrooms form a staple part of the diet in Japan, and the fungi are in such high demand that around 50,000 tons are imported annually, so scientists have been experimenting with artificial lightning to see if it could increase the crop.A four-year study carried out at Iwate University in northern Japan on ten species of mushroom (so far) has shown that for eight of the 10 mushroom…See More

iLAND symposium: Lecture on Friday at 7pm, Mushroom Walk Saturday at 10am (the mushroom season is starting again)

Please join Strataspore for a movement based lecture at 7pm on Friday and a performative walk through Chinatown on Saturday morning. We'll be hunting for mushrooms in shops and on the street. As Gary Lincoff walks and talks through medicinal and ornamental mushrooms, we will develop a correlation between his words and our movements, making meaning from movements and movements from meaning. If you're interested, please meet at 107 Suffolk (near Rivington) at 10am. We'll be on the move until…See More

Humble:Humus (the soil grounds us)

In John Ayto’s Word Origins, he says that humble literally means “close to the ground,” that humble is a derivative of humus meaning “earth” in Latin. Let's get closer to the ground! Let's hunt for mushrooms and put our eyes and faces and hands as close to the ground as possible! May humus help us risk humiliation and find freedom from pride and arrogance with every mushroom foray.
