Mushrooms are misunderstood. We want to encourage families to learn more about the fungi kingdom, how to identify them in the wild and learn more about the ways they interact in the natural world. We as a global community are facing climate change, habitat loss, food insecurity and poverty. Mushrooms and fungi can have a positive impact on each of these issues. We will share research and current knowledge of fungi to face these issues with a optimistic and educated view, and know that each of us can make a difference, encouraging others to explore the world of fungi. Growing our own mushrooms with spawn enables us to be sure we have an edible variety, and allows us to grow a species pleasing to our palate and nutritional needs.
