Workshop | Mycelium Cultivation

Thursday Feb. 6, 2020 , 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Daniel Reyes, fungi international

As our transition to sustainable practices becomes more urgent, explorations into cultivated materials have increased. On February 6, 2020, Daniel Reyes, founder of Fungi International, led a hands-on workshop that covered the potential of fungi in the built environment. Participants were provided with growing medium from local waste resources, inoculated with fungi, to grow their own mycelium blocks. Three fungi species were introduced: oyster (Pleurotus ostreatus), reishi (Ganoderma tsugae), and tiger sawgil (Lentinus tigrinus).
