Mycelium Mysteries

The third annual Women’s Mushroom Conference, Mycelium Mysteries, will be presented by Midwest Women’s Herbal, from September 27 through 29, at Camp Helen Brachman, in Almond, Wisconsin. Two preconference intensive workshops are scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m., September 26, and 9 a.m. to noon, September 27, preceding the main retreat.

There will be a marketplace, evening activities, keynote speakers and opportunities for networking and conversation. The retreat begins with an opening circle on Friday afternoon and ends with a closing circle on Sunday afternoon. Keynote speakers Katherine MacLean and Gina Rivers Contla will speak about groundbreaking topics such as mushrooms as guardians of the ecosystem as well as allies for life’s transitions.

Participants will find workshops for every level of experience on wild mushroom gathering and identification, including fungal ecology; mushroom medicine and nutrition; ethnomycology; women's roles in the herstory of fungi; mushroom arts and crafts; herbal wisdom; and more. The conference is a place to share knowledge and get comfortable with using mycological skills in a supportive community.
