Mycelium Mysteries Conference in Almond

Sep 01, 2022 12:00AM ● By Natural Awakenings Milwaukee
Midwest Women's Herbal presents the sixth annual Mycelium Mysteries Conference celebrating flora, fauna and fungi, from September 23 through 25, at Camp Helen Brachman. There will also be several pre-conference events, including forays and all-day workshops.

As possibly the only woman-focused mushroom conference in the world, Mycelium Mysteries focuses on mushrooms as the grandmothers of our ecosystem, and celebrates women’s voices from the world of mycology, personal growth and the healing arts.

The keynote speaker is New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Simard, author of Finding the Mother Tree. She will share the relevance of her work to those that love mushrooms, trees and community building, with advice for women interested in pursuing science as a career.

Others will speak on the significance of lichens in the environment, mushroom identification, mushroom foraging, growing and cooking with mushrooms, making art and medicine with mushrooms, using mushrooms for health and healing and personal growth, mycelium as a metaphor, and more.

While gathering in community, sharing knowledge, singing together and eating delicious food prepared from scratch by Dani Lind and her crew from Rooted Spoon Catering, the women attending are nourished and deeply connected to each other and to the Earth through mycelium.
