The fifth annual Mycelium Mysteries Conference, hosted by Midwest Women’s Herbal, focusing on all things in the mushroom world, will be presented in person on September 25, 26 and 27, in Dodgeville, Wisconsin. The conference is intended to provide inspiration and education about mushrooms for the health and healing of people and the planet. Workshops will be offered at the beginner through advanced levels on many topics such as wild mushroom skills, fungal ecology, fungi and human health, and ethnomycology.

This is the only women-run, -taught and -focused mushroom conference in the world. Keynote speakers include ethnomycologist Elinoar Shavit, mycologists Guiliana Furci and Sarah Foltz Jordan. Dr. Corenlia Cho will offer a preconference workshop on Mushrooms for Clinical Practice and Jordan will offer an all-day preconference foray, teaching women how to identify and collect mushrooms in the field. Meals, lodging/camping and activities are included.

Fungi are the “grandmothers” of our ecosystems, silently shaping the soil. The conference aims to help modern women connect with the roles and wisdom of their female ancestors that maintained and shared their understanding of the role of the fungal world. Midwest Women’s Herbal is committed to providing herbal education and opportunities for transformation, immersed in the Wise Woman Tradition.
