Event description

Description

Join Newtown Creek Alliance and instructor Craig Trester for an introductory workshop on Mycology. Fungi are the keystone species that interconnect every facet of life in our world. This class will highlight the supreme influence these ancient and often overlooked organisms have upon our health, society, and environment and also provide a succinct peek into the Fungal Queendom from the perspectives of ecology, anthropology, pharmacology, and bioremediation. The class also features a workshop component that teaches attendees how to perform low tech and low cost mushroom cultivation techniques that can be replicated at home with upcycled materials.

The event will begin with a tour of the Kingsland Wildflowers green roof. Space is limited.
