Conference Puts the Fun in Fungi

The fourth annual Midwest Women’s Herbal Conference, Mycelium Mysteries: A One of a kind Women’s Mushroom Conference, focusing on the health and wellness of people and the planet, will be held online on September 25, 26 and 27. The theme is Mushrooms as the Grandmothers of our ecosystem.

The virtual retreat will focus on understanding fungi shaping the soil as key players in the health of Earth and trajectory of human culture around the globe. Workshops will be offered at the beginner through advanced levels and include topics in wild mushroom skills, fungal ecology, fungi and human health, and ethnomycology. This is a place to learn and get comfortable with mycological skills in a supportive, “fungal” community.
