This class will go over the basics of bioremediation and what you can do to participate! We’ll learn from Jade Frolic of Metamimicry about this method of using biological organisms to clean the environment. Metamimicry has a special focus of growing mushrooms for bioremediation and in this class we will create some mushroom buckets for you to take home and apply in your garden or community’s garden.
In this workshop you will:

  • Learn the basics of bioremediation
  • Explore grassroots-level bioremediation installation designs and methods
  • Discuss the importance of this work and how it helps to mitigate the effects of climate change
  • Put together a mushroom bucket to take home!

This in-person session will take place indoors and outdoors and will include lecture, discussion, and a mushroom bucket demonstration. Class size is limited to 20 people and we will be using drills. We will be following the current public health recommendations – please plan to bring a mask and prepare for the weather.

*This workshop is part of an ongoing partnership in educational offerings with Tilth Alliance and Beacon Food Forest. The goal of these sessions is to focus on climate solutions that are creative and relevant in our urban communities.
