In the early spring of 2014 the Olympia Mycelial Network did an installation with the Olympia Waldorf School! On a brisk March day they gathered in the company of 3rd to 8th graders and learned how to do a fungi-garden bed installation. One garden bed with The Garden Giant, stropharia rugoso-annulata, and one installation with Elm Oyster, hypsizygus ulmarius.
If they continue to add hardwood chips their garden will continue to fruit of be a host garden for sharing at home!
Join the Olympia Mycelial Network and the Black Lake Grange on Saturday October 12th for the Black Lake Grange Fall Festival from 12:00-5:00pm! The event is agriculture focused and will feature several local groups and demonstrations based around sustainable agriculture and food security.
The Olympia Mycelial Network will be doing three demonstrations on how to use mushrooms in your garden, and for remediation. We’ll feature Elm Oyster(hypsizygus ulmarius), The Garden Giant(stropharia rugoso-annulata), and Oyster(pleurotis ostreatus). The Workshop will start at 2:00 and go until we’re finished, rain or shine.
Join us if you’re interested in mushrooms for food, medicine or remediation or just come to help out and join in the festivities!
