SOLD OUT - All about Sourdough: A Delicious Workshop

  • 20 Jay Street Brooklyn, NY, 11201 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

After a few deep dives into the mushroom cultivation, mycelium as biomaterials, and foraging, let's explore the single celled fungi - yeasts! As well as their symbiotic relationships with the Lactobacillus. Join us for this interactive sourdough workshop led by our fellow meetup member Laura Wooley to learn the ancient, mindful, and goddam delicious science of baking sourdough bread. We'll share a loaf of fresh bread and tackle the "whys" and "hows" of sourdough, so that after just two hours, you'll be well on your way to becoming a master of lactofermentation. After you learn to grow your own starter, you'll make your own dough to take home and bake.

Meetup Experiences: Build a Mushroom Sculpture

We’re pleased to be selected to participate in Meetup’s newest program Meetup Experiences. Get your hands dirty in this playful, eco-conscious event, where we'll take a fascinating journey through the fungi world and deepen our connection to nature. You will be guided through the fungi life cycle over a cup of immune-boosting chaga tea. As we learn about the structural abilities of fungi, we'll build our own one-of-a-kind mushroom sculpture using mycelium and recycled materials.

After 8 weeks of learning and working, we will wrap up the four part mushroom cultivation lab series with reflections and troubleshooting discussions. As a mushroom cultivator, I tend to think this type of discussions and reflections are the most valuable part of our learning process as we experiment and develop our hands-on skills. This session is open to anyone who’s interested in growing or working with mushrooms as well as those who would like to learn more about the Lab Series particularly. Come to meet, share, and learn with the mushroom community! $10 suggested donation.

We will meet every other week to go through the entire cultivation process and get as much hands-on as possible. You will learn to generate cultures from live mushrooms, produce large quantities of mushroom mycelium (also known as "spawn"), and build grow kits for fruiting mushrooms. Previous experience is not required. It's all about getting your hands dirty (or...clean indeed) and learning!

Fun with Fungi: Growing Mushrooms in the Classroom

We are excited to partner with Grow to Learn to bring this hands-on mushroom workshop to public school classrooms. Fungi are incredible organisms that can grow in different environments, remediate soils, break down waste products, create sustainable building materials, and of course grow culinary mushrooms. In this workshop, we’ll learn about the fungi life-cycle, examine different case studies of what mushrooms can do and be used for, learn to identify some varieties of mushrooms, and build our own mushroom spawn blocks using in low tech cultivation methods. We also want to hear from you about how you can connect classroom mushrooms to your curricula. Participants will bring home a mushroom grow kit which will develop over the next 2-3 weeks. Bring a bag or a box to carry home your kit. This workshop is free and open to all public school teachers.
