Community Share and Discussion with Mario Ceballos from POC Fungi

Wednesday, September 15, 2021 at 6:00pm

Virtual Event

How can we deepen our relationship to fungi? What can we do to hear the lessons fungi offer? What does reciprocity/relationship look like with fungi? 

These are a few of the questions Mario of POC Fungi Community will be asking and making space to reflect and open up to the possibility of seeing new perspectives on our relationship to fungi. This perspective can strengthen our affinity and symbiosis with fungi and all of nature.

Using examples in nature and fungi like Huitlacoche and Chaga, Mario will weave multiple narratives together to show that fungi have the ability to do more than just boost our immune system or be meat alternatives to the masses. Fungi are our ancestral relatives full of stories and lessons, longing to be connected.

Come ready for a conversation about fungal philosophy and open to sharing deeper, more meaningful relationships with fungi and mushrooms in our ecosystem. This deeper introspection can be applied by educators, artists, farmers, and community organizers to develop intentional practices when engaging with nature and your community.

POC Fungi Community is a resource and knowledge share that aims to increase access to medicinal fungi and representation for marginalized communities. Learn more about them at the links below:

Join our network of Community Mushroom Educators for a series of events this summer where we will collectively explore and discuss elements of fungi and their past, present, and future impacts on a wide range of communities in society. As this growing industry develops, it is critical that we ensure that everyone has access to the knowledge, materials, and skills necessary to cultivate fungi for food, medicine, and other uses. 

Access to these events is free and open to anyone interested in engaging in these conversations in a respectful, supportive, constructive, and co-creative way.
