Women’s Retreat to Focus on Fungi’s Role in Nature




Midwest Women’s Herbal will present Mycelium Mysteries: A Women’s Mushroom Retreat, from October 6 through 8, in Almond, Wisconsin. Eugenia Bone, author and food journalist, will make the keynote address, “Mycophilia,” a story of community and how mushrooms can be the window by which we understand nature and ourselves in a deeper way. Other presenters include Sue Van Hook, Mara Penfil, Linda Conroy, Sarah Foltz and Carla Kramer. Registration is now open for the event.

      A key component in the quality of our soil, fungi are key players in the Earth’s health and the path of human culture around the globe. Yet, few study fungi, and it is considered to be a neglected megascience, and their mycelium, a mystery. The retreat will focus on understanding fungi as the “grandmothers of our ecosystems”, with workshops at beginner through advanced levels. Topics include wild mushroom skills, ethnomycology, fungal ecology, and fungi and human health. This is a place to share knowledge and get comfortable with using mycological skills in a supportive community.
