Find your Inner Fungi is an introductory mycology exploration from Fungi Jon perfect for beginners and the myco-curious. This class will demonstrate the potential and depth of mycology while exploring the multiple ways you can be involved with fungi. Participants will gain foundational knowledge of mycology and understand the many ways they can intentionally work with fungi while bringing awareness to the many ways they already coexist with fungi.
How can we can deepen our relationship with fungi, and how are we intimately connected with mushrooms and fungi on our planet?
This class will include an overview of native mushrooms and identification, fungi ecology, citizen science, propagating mushrooms, medicinal potential of mushrooms, preparing gourmet and medicinal mushrooms, fermented fungi foods (tempeh & kombucha) and mush more.

All participants will go home with a personal oyster mushroom grow experiment which we will prepare in class to begin observing the processes of fungi first hand. Let’s take a trip through the world of mushrooms together and expand our journey in symbiosis with fungi!
