The Roulant’s mushroom growing collective has been making some serious strides towards the different aspects of its mission over the past year.
Last week in particular they spread the spores of knowledge by hosting a workshop out at McGill’s Macdonald campus. The collective was invited by student organizers who recognized the interest among their colleagues in learning about this more mysterious aspect of agricultural production.
The workshop focused on teaching low-tech techniques of cultivation that can be undertaken at home. Participants learned the theory behind these procedures and then tested out a portion of the process. Each person took home a bag of mushroom spawn. The collective is looking to develop a range of workshops to offer the community so stay tuned to our newsletter for the next one.
In the meantime the collective is looking for some material to help their production. Check out the Mycollective section on our wishlist page, you may have some things lying around that could be of use!
