An Ecologically-Focused Mushroom Walk in Montreal
Join mycologist Willoughby Arevalo for a participatory, field-based workshop, covering core skills for mushroom identification and biology, geared towards all levels of experience. We will observe and sense fungi in their natural settings while exploring their complex relationships with other organisms, including humans. Discussion topics include culinary and medicinal applications, ethical harvesting practices, cultivation and mycoremediation potential, traditional uses and more. Through this journey, participants will come to understand the roles that fungi play in symbiosis, succession, and regeneration, and how we can ally with fungi in our living systems to increase community and personal resilience.
When: Sunday, June 28, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m, rain or shine.

Contribution: $30-$60 sliding scale, kids free or by donation. Noone will be turned away for lack of funds, but please pay what you can.
