Medicinal Mushrooms Workshop
Please join Arturo Castellon and Carmen Rodriguez of South Florida Fungi for a medicinal mushroom taller/workshop. Arturo and Carmen produce fresh, gourmet and exotic mushrooms that are locally and organically grown, using environmentally sound methods here in South Florida. They believe in education, sustainability, and innovation through an approach of community outreach.
They are obsessed with the health benefits for immunity, energy, and longevity that have been studied for centuries, and they want to help you learn all about the mushroom kingdom. The taller will include an in depth and hands on lecture of mushroom: history, kingdom, medicinal constituents and uses, types (you’ll get to see & touch them!), growing methods, preparation methods, and more. Each student will learn how to make a double reishi extract, tincture, decoction, tea, and grow their own reishi mushrooms at home.
The taller includes: printed in-depth syllabus with other learning resources information, an 8 fl oz reishi mushroom double extract (tinctured then decocted) with all materials to finish the process at home, reishi growing kit, communal reishi tea, and a surprise!
Your reishi mushroom growing kit is fully colonized and ready to fruit. All grow kits and spawn are 5+ lbs that will deliver flush after flush.
About South Florida Fungi: Beyond Mushrooms, Carmen and Arturo believe in integrated systems of Agriculture that mimic that of a natural Environment. It all began with South Florida Fresh, an account you can follow on Instagram which showcases our small family farm and other local farms in South Florida and now obsessed with all things Mushrooms! They are excited to share this journey with all their customers and followers!
What: MEDICINAL MUSHROOMS TALLER/WORKSHOP
Where: Mother Earth Miami, 115 NE 76TH St, Miami, Fl 33138
When: Saturday, February 23rd, 2018
We like to put together small workshops groups so the interaction between the students and the teachers is more effective and also because we work with small business like ours who grow and prepare products in small amounts.
For this reason, we are not offering refunds. If you need to cancel, please contact us by email or by phone a week to a few days before so your space can be replaced by someone that wishes to participate. This only applies if there is someone available to take your spot.
We like to reuse and use glass, metal or ceramic containers so, we strongly encourage our participants to bring their own cup or jar with lid (if you’ll like to take some to-go) for the reishi communal tea part of the workshop.
We will also have some medicinal mushrooms for sale at the end of the taller!
