Cool Stuff You Can Do With Fungi: Make your own digester for household waste – Workshop This Thursday!

Thursday, May 21st from 7-9pm

@ Fernwood Community Centre (1240 Gladstone)

Oyster and King Stropharia mushrooms are great at breaking down our household and urban waste.This workshop will offer an overview of some of the cool stuff you can do with fungi where you live- from growing protein-rich food on recycled materials, to filtering your greywater, to breaking down your cigarettes, animal waste, oil and grease and so much more. Each participant will make their own ‘mushroom digester’ to take home.

$35-50 sliding scale (1 work trade available) Please RSVP and let me know which type of digester you will make: cigarette, animal waste, oil and grease, greywater or chicken coop. For more info and to register, contact: Danielle Stevenson at 250-891-4927 or diyfungivictoria@gmail.com

Pearl Oyster almost fully eaten a totally dirty grease rag from a bike shop. Most bike lubes are made from teflon, which is "polytetrafluoroethylene" - and essentially carbon-based. This Oyster mushroom is shown on Day 4- Today, less than one week later, it has completely consumed the cloth rag soaked in a teflon-based lube!
