Lecture & DIY Cultivation Workshop by Craig Trester, founder of MYC.NYC:
Fungi are the keystone species that interconnect every facet of life in our world. This workshop will highlight the supreme influence these ancient and often overlooked organisms have upon our health, society, environment, and also provide a succinct peek into the Fungal Queendom from the perspectives of ecology, anthropology, pharmacology, and bioremediation. Workshop attendees will learn how to perform low-tech, low-cost mushroom cultivation techniques that can be replicated at home with up-cycled materials and also take home their own DIY mushroom cultures made during the session.
About the Instructor:
Craig M Trester is a community scientist and creative biologist who applies biomimicry and permaculture principles through mycology to develop regenerative solutions. By studying Fungi, he believes novel approaches towards alternative agriculture, pharmacology, and bioremediation can be realized. Craig runs MYC.NYC, an applied mycology educational resource that teaches the benefits Fungi provide to our health, environment, and society to academic, research, community, and private audiences.
