weekly introductory mycology lesson
    #3606674 - 01/10/05 05:00 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I suggest a weekly lesson in hardcore mycology. Starting with the basics. I learned the bulk of what I know from this site and a few others, but it was reinforced and pushed to the next level by reading and taking notes out of Introduction to mycology. I say this because although we all know about magic mushies and even a few of us study the med and gorms, I feel the we are truly a mycological society that is forced to the edges of respected society. We should all have the weapons to fight the war against ignorance. We should all have the goal of becoming experts in our hobby. Just as a amateur rc plane hobbyist studies aeronautics, we should study the sexual and or asexual reproduction of our beloved fungi. I dream that we could all be able to be guest speakers at mycological conventions and such. Thank you for reading my rant. Semper Fungi

This has been brought up before and its a great idea.... The thing is most people who really know how to grow, won't openly discus any "how to" type things on a drug related message board. They consider it "incriminating"

If anything takes shape though, let me know!

Hey Lana. I hope you're well.

Here's a suggested idea to implement this:

Have a section on the initial homepage to sign up for the online mycology lessons for a fee. (The less the better). Required text books for in-home use would be simply the two by Paul Stamets (TMC and GGMM).

Section I
Getting to know 3 major fungi categories

Course 1: Introduction to Fungi (Edibles only) - edibles to give the course a more safe entrance and broaden the audience
A. The admins could select required reading from certain pages/sections of the Stamets books and each week the student would be required to take a test and post information on personal work, kind of like a lab course in school. The more elaborate the better I think. Students will be required to demonstrate in their own words how to identify 10 different edible mushrooms by telling us their habitat, growth parameters, features, a step-by-step id process for each fungus, and a recipe to cook each one differently.

Course 2: Introductions to fungi (poisonous/toxics)

Course 3: Introduction to fungi (The Actives: Psilocybes, Conocybes, Amanitas)

Section II
Course 1: Growing the might fungi

Section III
Course 1. Selling the fungi at no cost to Enter

:cool: :cool:

I'm running out of juice to post this. It's kind of complicated when I'm not getting anything out of this except a potential ass beating from Thor and those darn Canadians in rebellion.  :cool:

Yiou get the point tho, right?
