Mycelial Mass Goes ONLINE:


- and -


We have all had to adapt to this new viral threat, and Mycelial Mass is adapting right along so we can keep building the community!  In fact, we will probably continue to hold these online events because they have given us such an amazing opportunity to bring Mycelial Mass into each of your grow set-ups!  

Join us every LAST TUESDAY AND LAST SUNDAY for a virtual show-and-tell featuring the Mycelial Mass fungal lab as well as all the projects of the students who join us.  Each class will feature a live tutorial based on a pre-submitted question from one of our community members, including but not limited to inoculations, sterilization procedures, preparing agar, using grow bags, isolating wild mycelium and spores and more.  We will also feature surprise guest stars of the mycology scene giving us their perspectives as taxonomists, microbiologists, chefs, mushroom growers, extractors and fermenters!  

Register once and get an email with all the info to join any of our classes!
