Hello Mushroom Enthusiasts!

Fungal friends,

Here are some events for you to enjoy for the upcoming month!

TONIGHT!!

Head over to Wavelength Brewing Co. as Mycologist Steve Farrar will be at the Science Stage for a sequel to his 2019 talk “Fungus Among Us“. 

Did you know that San Diego County has a vibrant mushroom growing industry? Steven Farrar, also long time member of the SDMS,  has been a part of that industry for over 25 years, growing a variety of mushrooms for both culinary and health purposes. Mushroom cultivation employs a variety of sciences and technologies, including robotic mushroom farming. Come learn about the amazing world of fungi and its presence in our community. 

Again, that’s tonight, September 24th at 8 PM at Wavelength Brewing Co.

Here’s the Facebook link for more information on Steve’s talk.
