The Art & Science of Cultivation

Essential Training with a Deeper Perspective

Mycology and the world of mushroom cultivation is a newly emerging field with so many possibilities and exciting arenas to explore.  Within this series, we offer you foundational skill training with a well-rounded scientific and mystical perspective of biology, fungal ecology & ethnobotany so you have a stronger, more robust understanding of Mycology.  We distill down the complexity of mushroom cultivation into easy-to-understand processes so you can experiment, innovate and create your own path of cultivation.  While we approach this study with a lens of focus on medicinal fungi, these principles can be applied to a wide diversity of species and projects...

Interwoven Themes

Our mission extends beyond the simple steps of mushroom cultivation.  Together we will explore a broad range of themes that span from deep mysticism to the hard sciences of biology and everything that lies in between. We aim to connect with the depth of experience to be found within the intersection of the Kingdom of Fungi and Humanity.

A Historic Glimpse

The connection between humanity, fungi, and the mystical experience extends deep in our history.  Very recent evidence is now surfacing and revealing the extend to which we have used fungi in ceremonial practices.

Endless Application

Mycology is in its early stages of development.  From better understanding cultivation, we can apply our work with fungi in an incredibly diverse arena of work. From building myco-materials, leather, packaging and clothing to diverse medicine, 'mycoremediation' and unique sources of food, the Kingdom of Fungi offers an abundance of areas to explore.

Jonathan Fredette

Mycologist, Cultivator, Educator, Citizen Scientist

This is my fourth year of leading educational series and I'm extremely excited to continue to delve into the world of Mycology, entrepreneurship, and the healing arts and sciences with you all and beyond.  I have a diverse background in medical sciences, nutrition and business after having worked in various kitchens, medical laboratories and now, mycology labs.  With this has come a deep appreciation of the healing arts of Mycology, Biology, Ecology and Human Health and has provided a wealth of knowledge in applying lessons and medicine into human life.   Having cultivated fungi for over 7 years and watched a diversity of students make incredible strides in their own gardens, labs and businesses, I am  excited to turn the page on another chapter of this path...
