Collective - Mycollective, Urban Agriculture, Volunteering - Personal

The Mycollective is a gathering of mushroom enthusiasts that seeks to create a nucleus of knowledge about mycology and in doing so expand the breadth of urban agriculture in our community. We also aim to develop expertise about low-tech and inexpensive ways to cultivate mushrooms.

We are looking for volunteers (occasional basis) and members (weekly commitment):
