Lecture & Workshop by William Padilla-Brown, founder of MycoSymbiotics:

Join in practical phycology to gain a practical understanding of the top five algae cultures for commercial and small scale farms alike. With a focus on spirulina due to its ease of cultivation and its level of safety for consumption. We will cover the ins and outs of media preparation, culture maintenance, batch culturing, harvesting and consumption. Gain hands-on experience preparing cultures for you to take home. Class will end with a phycophagy tasting to demonstrate how fresh spirulina can be readily incorporated into foods to boost their nutritional value.
