About your facilitator:
Simon Kurieta has been actively working with and cultivating mushrooms for 9 years. During this time, he has studied and explored various ways to grow mushrooms for food, health and the planet. As an environmental scientist, mycologist and mushroom cultivator he has been continually inspired and captivated by the world of mushrooms and their potential to help solve some of the global problems we face. He believes that by growing our own mushrooms and understanding the role of fungi in nature, we can begin to create more resilient communities centred around locally grown food, community-based education and a deeper understanding of nature. He loves to share his passion for growing mushrooms and believes that anyone, anywhere can begin to grow their own mushrooms for themselves, their family and the community.
