Myco Mindful Gardening
October 17 @ 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM$90
Spend a day exploring seed, soil and mycelium in the garden in this hands-on workshop. Discover the role mycoremediation plays in healing our soil as well as its ability to be the “defense” in the fight against harmful toxins in your own home garden and beyond! Learn about the possibilities mycelium plays in restoring balance in our environment and see firsthand how mycoactive compost benefits root structure, decreases environmental stress and makes nutrients more bioavailable to plants. Discuss with local mushroom growers the benefits mycelium can have in your own home garden.
Emily and Christopher Appelman run a homestead in the Driftless Region with their two girls Sparrow and Esmae. The Appelmans have more than five years of experience in hardwood log and mulch mushroom cultivation. During these 5 years of growing they have also utilized their knowledge of mycoremediation to its full revitalizing potential by using mycoactive compost in their soil to better the health of their crops and the surrounding ecosystem. Outside of this they enjoy teaching many Mycorrhizal related workshops throughout Iowa and Wisconsin.
