April 12 @ AMC Monthly Meeting

Our guest this month will be William Padilla-Brown. He will offer a talk on “Fungal Fortunes.” The field of mycology has never been more accessible to the public, with online forums, books from experts, and workshops in almost all major cities in the U.S. we are seeing more and more “amateur mycologists” contributing to our understanding of fungi. William will be speaking on how he started culturing wild mushrooms, starting a farm, and learning how to grow cordyceps mushrooms. Learn how fungi, and mushrooms can be incorporated into whole system designs for the home/farm, and community for food, medicine, and remediation. The presentation will end with a discussion on biohacking yourself with nootropic, and adaptogenic fungi, mushrooms, sclerotia, and lichen.

William Padilla-Brown operates MycoSymbiotics LLC, a small mycological research and mushroom production business and runs a non-profit in New Cumberland, PA called Community Compassion focusing on Radical Sustainability. He has educated children and adults on topics from mushroom cultivation to nutrition via various workshops and programs around the country.
