Thanks to the mega-knowledgeable Darren Springer for a brilliant mushroom growing workshop at Psychedelic Society. As well as learning how to grow our own mushrooms, we heard about different cultural uses and significance of mushrooms globally. I don't know if I'll be taking up mushroom growing any time soon, but it definitely connects with my love of all things fermented from composting to making raw vinegars. Spotted this the next day - not edible, but isn't nature just incredible?
I'm Virginia and I run Goodness. I'm slightly obsessed with raw cacao and the medicinal properties of food, which runs in the blood (there are herbalists, nurses and farmers in my family). I'll be posting about chocolate, healing foods, thoughts, recipes and experiments.
