First we will start with learning the basics of mushroom foraging in the Pacific Northwest: - What are mushrooms - How are they described - Common mushrooms for beginners to identify - How they grow and where to find them Then we will talk about how to grow mushrooms at home - Different methods for growing mushrooms such as in bags, jars, logs, and gardens - What do mushrooms need - How to protect them from contaminants - How to clone a mushroom you find or buy Finally, we will make a grow-at-home kit with one of my many varieties of mushrooms. - Make new petri dishes with mushroom cultures - Prepare a mushroom grow kit with sterilized sawdust and mushroom mycelium You will be able to take this bag home with you to watch the mycelium grow, and eventually watch your mushrooms fruit.
I am a mushroom forager, and cultivator who loves to teach others about the wonderful world of fungi. I have hosted the Seattle Mycology Meetup for the past 2 years, help to organize the Spring mushroom show for the Puget Sound Mycological Society, and teach courses on mushroom identification for beginners. Over the past 5 years I have taken over 5000 photos of mushrooms around the US as well as Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Singapore, and Japan. I have never been secretive with my foraging spots because as a hiker, I am constantly visiting new areas. I have spent hundreds of nights in a tent and can offer lots of advice on safety, navigation, and preparation for foraging in the Pacific Northwest. I have a small mushroom lab in my home used for cultivating a variety of gourmet mushrooms like oyster, shiitake, and lion's mane.
I will have a variety of drinks and snacks available

As I am hosting in my home, there are typical house-related limitations and considerations. I have a somewhat narrow turn in a staircase leading to the lab space. I also have a cat so those with allergies may want to consider other options.
