The Mycollective is a collective of volunteers who are passionate about mycology and have adopted a mandate to acquire and share knowledge about mushrooms. We operate within the context of urban agriculture.

Our Values

The collective is an inclusive space that values diversity and mutual respect. Our activities focus primarily on education and sustainable development. Communication within the collective is bilingual, and each member is encouraged to participate to the extent of their abilities in projects and discussions.

Our Mission


To regularly supply the Santropol kitchen with fresh mushrooms from our cultivation projects


To encourage the sharing of experiences in urban mushroom cultivation between members.


To share our knowledge with the community through educational workshops adapted to each audience

Mushroom Growing Workshops

The Mycollective runs discovery mushroom cultivation workshops for a variety of audiences.
For example, we animate school field trips, run workshops during urban agriculture festivals (Cultiver Montréal) and teach mushroom cultivation at libraries, community gardens, universities, and other locations.

Contact us if you have a project in mind for your class, event or organisation: our workshops are fully personalizable according to your needs.

Become a Myco Volunteer

The Mycollective is open to new members. Our members help with mushroom production at home or on the farm and participate in other activities (experimental workshops between members, collective picking day, etc.).

As a member you will need to be available for a few hours a month year round, including a mandatory online monthly meeting (approximately 1 hr). In addition, during summer (from late spring to early fall) more hours will be required. New members are selected based on availability, motivation to learn and level of experience.
