The Radical Mycology Convergence is a unique gathering of mycologists, mushroom enthusiasts, and Earth stewards coming together to share skills and information on the numerous benefits of the fungal kingdom for humans and the planet. The RMC is a multiple-day long event consisting of workshops, presentations, and various projects using fungi and other organisms to remediate & restore damaged environments.

Calling all Radical Mycologists, mycophiles, citizen scientists, and land stewards!
The Radical Mycology Collective is excited to officially announce plans for the 3rd ever Radical Mycology Convergence (RMC)! If you haven´t heard of the RMC before, you can read reportbacks about the two Convergences here:

What is the RMC?

The Radical Mycology Convergence is a unique gathering of mycologists, mushroom enthusiasts, and Earth stewards coming together to share skills and information on the numerous benefits of the fungal kingdom for humans and the planet. The RMC is a multiple-day long event consisting of workshops, presentations, and various projects using fungi and other organisms to remediate & restore damaged environments. Beyond the skills shared, the RMC also works to build a community among like-minded mycophiles (aka mushroom lovers) and community-based earth healers to collaborate on remediation and restoration projects during and after the RMC.

Why

The organizers of the Radical Mycology Convergence feel strongly that the skills of need to be shared. We want to make information on the fungi and their healing powers accessible and tangible for as many people as possible without making it overly-heady or technical. By creating an encouraging and welcoming space we hope to “be-mushroom” all who attend in an effort to bring about greater planetary health.

Who

The organizers of the RMC would like to invite anyone interested in participating in this event to come and learn, help out, or teach! The RMC is family friendly, non-discriminatory, and is donation-based to provide open access to people of all backgrounds.

Where & When

The location and date of the 3rd RMC is still to be determined. For more info on this and how to help us find a location, visit out Location & Date page here:

Contribute!
As a fruiting body of our mycelial efforts, it will only be through the combined efforts of all those involved in the RMC to help envision, organize, and co-create the next RMC, and we would love to have your input and involvement! We are especially in need of people to help organize and promote this year's event, lead workshops, and create promotional materials. If you interested in helping in any way or if you have ideas or leads on locations, please contact us at radmycology [at] gmail.com.
