Farming with Fungi
July 28, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Olympia Food Co-op is proud to announce that Fungi Perfecti select mushroom starter kits, that were previously only available through mail order, are now available for purchase at our Westside Garden center. Join us for this informative presentation that will feature information on low tech mushroom cultivation for home and garden, people and planet.
Farming with Fungi: This talk is an overview and exploration of a variety of ways that
mushrooms can be incorporated into a sustainable farming practice. From benefiting soil
structure, to increasing bloom production and supporting the health of your animals, fungi are
your farms newest old friend.
Fungi Perfecti, LLC is a family-owned business out of Olympia dedicated to promoting the
cultivation of high-quality gourmet and health benefiting mushrooms. In business since 1980,
we have been instrumental in developing new technologies and markets for gourmet
mushrooms throughout the world. Through our in-depth classes and information networks, we
encourage the establishment of a constellation of independent, organically minded growers
whose collective consciousness will define this emerging industry well into the next century. We
hope you will join us in this endeavor. The future is ours.
Our Mission: To explore, study, preserve and spread knowledge about the use of fungi for
helping people and planet.
