Come Explore the Medicinal Qualities of Fungi
Fungi have much more to offer than simply nutrition or ecosystem services. Many of the compounds that they produce to enhance their own existence have also been shown to have measurable effects on human health. From antibiotic and antiviral compounds to immune and organ function support, come see what how fungal allies have been healing our ancestors and explore what they may have in store for you.

The workshop will be presented by Mountain Mycoworks' Ben Shepard and Jona Khaosanga as the final installment in Broken Ground's Myco Month.
Ben Shepard, founder of Mountain Mycoworks, completed a degree in Sustainable Foods and Bioenergy Systems at MSU in 2013. His experience with mycology ranges from self study to attendance of Fungi for the Peoples' Cultivation and Design workshop. Ben has further experience with permaculture, edible forest design, alternative greenhouse design and construction, and alternative landscaping, including Agroecological design, in which fungi are critical elements.
Jona Khaosanga is an artist, maker, pollinator, rabble-rouser, and dirt farmer currently residing in Bozeman, MT, by way of the dirty south. Since moving to Montana in Spring 2012, Jona has been furthering her mycological, edible forest, and permaculture knowledge through workshop opportunities with Fungi for the People, Radical Mycology, Dave Jacke, Sepp Holzer, Broken Ground Permaculture, and more.
