One of the core values at the Mason Street City Farm is that access to healthy food is a basic human right. No one should suffer from lack of food based on social inequities. We want to change this imbalance in our food system by providing low income and marginalized communities increased access to the skills needed to grow their own food. In order to do this, we need to provide jobs! We are not going to change the injustice in our current food system if we don’t change who has access to the knowledge and skills to build a community food system that includes everyone.

Humans have been growing mushrooms using low-tech approaches for more than 2000 years, and you can too!

There is a growing movement of radical mycologists, home-scale mushroom growers and do-it-yourself kinda people who are experimenting with easy and cheap ways to grow mushrooms on recycled waste materials, without needing a lab or expensive materials. There are so many cool things you can do once you understand the basics about fungi, and I hope this blog will offer some inspiration for further mushroom adventures.

Ja Schindler, fungi wizard of offers the term myco-resiliency to describe the ability to learn from and work with fungi in an ever changing environment. I feel this is key to approaching mushroom cultivation- as a mutual and dynamic relationship- led by your curiosity. Let is be respectful, reciprocal, playful and explore, connect, listen, experiment.
