We were so lucky to present about Fungi Education during the “For the Love of Fungi,” festival in the Catskills, NY. This wonderful event was full of fantastic fungi-learning activities led by some excellent presenters, including our partner John Michelotti from Catskill Fungi. Luke Sarrantonio, creator of the Mycophilic, organized the event and brought together so many mycophiles for a day full of guided mushroom walks and so many other activities to learn more about fungi.
We enjoyed listening to presentations about growing and cooking mushrooms, creating mushroom art, and inoculation demonstrations. We are so grateful to have had the chance to participate and present our learning resources at Fungi Education.
Thank you to Luke Sarrantonio for all of his hard work organizing this excellent event!
The Fungi Education 2023 Year-End Wrap-Up highlights the Fungi Foundation's accomplishments, including a remarkable surge in course enrollment, the publication of a Spanish curriculum, collaborations with partners like North Spore and Syzygy Science, and impactful outreach efforts in the tri-state area. The program's success is attributed to global support, and the Foundation anticipates continued growth in spreading fungal knowledge.
The 2023 STANYS conference in Syracuse celebrated fungi education with engaging presentations by Diana Richards from the Fungi Foundation. Teachers embraced free resources and received mushroom grow kits, fostering a new appreciation for mycology in classrooms. This marked a milestone in the foundation's mission. Stay tuned for more updates on their educational initiatives.
