The Olympia Mycelial Network is happy to announce plans for the first (inter)national Radical Mycology Convergence. A fungi-human relations congress of sorts, this convergence will be a unique opportunity for humans to build stronger connections with our fungal allies. 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. There will also be an opportunity to put theory to practice by working on a mycorestoration project in a damaged habitat. But really, it will be what we all make it. Plus, we plan on this event being toward the end of August, 2011, in Cascadia (aka the Pacific Northwest), one of the best times and places in the world to see mushrooms.
The Olympia Mycelial Network would like to cordially invite anyone interested in participating in this event to contact us. We are looking for general helpers, organizers, workshop facilitators, presenters, workshop leaders, cooks, and anyone else with an inclination towards fungi. If this sounds like you, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
to let us know.
