Mycelium Mysteries 2022

Courtesy of Midwest Women's Herbal Conference

Midwest Women’s Herbal presents the sixth annual Mycelium Mysteries Conference celebrating flora, fauna and funga, from September 23 through 25, at Camp Helen Brachman. There will be several pre-conference events, including forays and all-day workshops.

The only women-focused mushroom conference in the world, Mycelium Mysteries focuses on mushrooms as the grandmothers of our ecosystem and celebrates women’s voices from the world of mycology, personal growth and the healing arts. 

The keynote speaker is New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Simard, author of Finding the Mother Tree. She will share the relevance of her work to those that love mushrooms, trees and community building, with advice for women interested in pursuing science as a career.

Others will speak on the significance of lichens in the environment, mushroom identification, mushroom foraging, growing and cooking with mushrooms, making art and medicine with mushrooms, using mushrooms for health and healing, personal growth, mycelium as a metaphor and more.

Gathering in community, sharing knowledge, singing together, and eating delicious food prepared from scratch by Dani Lind and her crew from Rooted Spoon Catering, this weekend nourishes and connects women deeply to the Earth through mycelium and to each other.
